This famous little opera has enchanted adults and children alike for many years. Now, the Comic Opera Guild Educational Outreach program has brought this story of two children overcoming evil into the modern world, setting it in 1983. Where the witch previously rode a broomstick, she now drives a Mercedes, but her intentions are just as wicked. Hansel and Gretel must navigate the inner city before being drawn to a house decorated for Christmas to lure them in.
The intimate venue of the Riverside Arts Center brings you close to the drama, and the beauty of the score makes this a great show for every generation!
