Hansel and Gretel 2024

Sunday, December 15, 2024

Back by popular demand, on December 15th, 2024 at 2 p.m. at the Andrews Memorial Theater, 54 East Main St., Clinton, Opera Theater of Connecticut will present its acclaimed reduced version of Hansel and Gretel. The opera is sung in English, accompanied by piano and features a children’s chorus and dancing angels. Abridged to run approximately one hour and fifteen minutes, including intermission, this is the perfect Holiday show and Christmas gift for the entire family.

Based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, the opera features Hansel and Gretel, the lost brother and sister; Peter, their father who searches for them; the Sandman, who protects them; the Dew Fairy, who awakens and guides them; and Rosina the Witch, who captures them.

Adding to the fun and excitement, we are again collaborating with The Shoreline Theater Academy/Kidz Konnection, Laura Attanasio Artistic Director, whose young singers will be featured as the “Gingerbread” children and whose dancers appear as the Angels.
Kyle Swann is the Music Director, Alan Mann is the Staging Director.
Tickets are $25.00 for adults and $10.00 for children 13 and under.
Tickets will be available starting January 1, 2023.
