Loved by hundreds and thousands of people the world over, Hansel & Gretel is one of the most popular operas ever written. Now OperaQ and shake & stir theatre co present this Humperdinck classic, reimagined especially for primary students in the 21st century. Hansel and Gretel are on a journey into the forest. They’re searching for food for the family table but what they discover is far more appealing… do they dare taste the sweet façade of the gingerbread house?
Hansel & Gretel will transport children and adults alike to a contemporary world of magic, fairies and sweets with its enchanting story of survival and family bonds. Performed by a talented cast of Queensland’s most energetic opera talents and directed by the multi-award winning team at shake & stir theatre co, Hansel & Gretel is a taste of theatre and opera that will leave everyone hungry for more. This exciting new production tours primary schools across Queensland.
Hansel & Gretel is specifically designed for primary school aged children (Prep-6) and covers themes of storytelling, bravery, friendship and trust. Throughout the performance, and back in their classrooms, students are able to use key critical thinking skills to analyse the themes relating to their own context and world.
Enjoy this timeless classic in your very own classroom. Hansel & Gretel is coming to you in 2018!
