Shoestring’s Hansel and Gretel (Hansel et Gretel)
Performance by Shoestring OperaHansel and Gretel live with their single mom next door to a very strange lady who practices night and day on a cello. And why is she always sweeping her front porch? Who knows? “She might be a witch, with an awful twitch who rides the air with a broomstick switch!” Thoroughly spooked, they fall asleep and wake up to a wild roller-coaster ride through the land of the fairy tale, with a wondrous gingerbread house and a batty old witch... who plays the cello! Hansel shows off some groovy dance moves set to Humperdinck’s gorgeous music as Gretel leads them both out of trouble and into a greater understanding of their strange neighbour. Come and join the dance! The opera will be performed by two actor-singers (a soprano and a baritone) and a wicked witch cellist, as well as a pianist.
