About

Wednesday 22 - Saturday 25 March 2017

Opera North return with three performances:

Hansel and Gretel Engelbert Humperdinck - Wed 22 & Sat 25 March (7pm) and Thurs 23 March (11am)

Perhaps the best-loved operatic fairy tale of them all, Hansel and Gretel is also one of the darkest. From a poor family to whom hunger is an ever-present threat, the siblings escape to the world of the forest, both idyllic and dangerous. There, they encounter supernatural forces such as the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch. Featuring some of Humperdinck’s most enchanting music, Hansel and Gretel is the perfect treat.

Sung in English with English titles

 

Cinderella – Gioachino Rossini - Thurs 23 March (7pm) and Sat 25 March (2pm)
La Cenerentola

A much-loved fairy tale but not quite as you know it. Cinderella dreams of a better life as she scrubs the floor of the school of dance. The prince arrives seeking a companion and so this sparkling romcom goes…. An evening of pure magic is in store uniting the fun, fire and brilliance of Rossini’s music with a fresh and witty production. With fabulous frocks and dance woven into the very music of this opera, Cinderella prescribes a healthy dose of entertainment to cure those winter blues.

Sung in Italian with English titles

 

The Snow Maiden – Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Fri 24 March (7pm)

The Snow Maiden is warm and beautiful but she hides a tragic secret… her heart is made of ice. If warmed by the love of a human heart, her heart will melt and she will die. Enchanted by the shepherd boy Lel, she yearns to experience life with humans. Her parents relent with tragic consequences… A gorgeous and lyrical evocation of the natural world, Rimsky Korsakov’s delightfully colourful score is based on a well-loved Russian fairy tale.

Sung in English with English titles
