Follow the trail of breadcrumbs to Opera Colorado’s production of the beloved fairytale Hansel and Gretel.
Stranded in the Magic Forest, things look “Grimm” indeed for Gretel and her brother Hansel. What follows is an enchanted odyssey through a magical forest and a house made of gingerbread. The pair encounters everything from a magical Sandman to a witch with a sweet tooth who really likes kids—well-done, that is! Sung in English and staged traditionally, this enchanting performance is sure to entertain. A unique and creative way to incorporate classical literature and fairytales into your curriculum!
