About the Event
Based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Hansel + Gretel tells the story of two siblings who set out to pick berries and get lost in the woods. Upon discovering a mysterious gingerbread house in the forest, the pair think they are saved, only to find themselves having to face off against the strange old woman who lives there. The children must use their wits, resourcefulness and cooperation to outsmart their captor and find their way back home.
Each year, Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artists bring the excitement of live opera to schools across Calgary and southern Alberta. The fun, fully-staged production based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale is crafted especially for young viewers and provides students with a deeper understanding of classical music, operatic singing, creative storytelling and the history and traditions of opera.
There will be a post-show audience discussion to deepen the students’ engagement.
Suitable for Grades K-6. We apologize that we're not able to accommodate younger students or babes in arms.
