Bring the family and enjoy the remount of Opera Orlando’s holiday confectionery treat, Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel. Sung in English and reduced to a kid-friendly 75 minutes, this retelling of the Grimms fairy tale features a lush score, charming characters, and a delightfully villainous witch you won’t want to miss. The cast features soprano Kyaunnee Richardson as the plucky and adorable Gretel with mezzo-soprano Gloria Palermo as her headstrong but lovable brother Hansel. Mezzo-soprano Robyn Rocklein is the witch and creepy purveyor of cookies, candies, and cakes. Opera Orlando’s education director Robin Jensen conducts, and artistic director Grant Preisser directs, with musicians from theOrlando Philharmonic Orchestra and members of theOpera Orlando Youth Company.
