This event has passed.

Engelbert Humperdinck’s operatic retelling of the ever-popular Grimm fairy tale features a lush score and charming characters that, on Christmas Day in 1931, became the first complete Metropolitan Opera radio-broadcast performance. The cast includes mezzo-soprano Sarah Purser as Hansel, soprano Jillian Marini as Gretel, soprano Samantha Barnes Daniel as the mother, baritone Ben Ludwig as the father, and tenor Jess Muñoz as the witch. Opera Orlando’s music and education director Robin Jensen conducts, and creative director Grant Preisser directs this perfect family treat. Come and get lost in the woods this holiday season.

This reduced version of Opera Orlando's Mainstage production with piano introduces opera to children. Performances will run approximately one hour with no intermission. Free for youth under 18 years old.
