Hansel and Gretel
February 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every 2 days that begins at 4:00pm, repeating until February 16, 2020
The Dickinson College Department of Music is excited to present Engelbert Humperdinck’s fairy-tale opera “Hansel and Gretel,” the first opera production to be staged and performed at Dickinson since the 1980s. Dickinson’s production of “Hansel and Gretel” is a creative take on Humperdinck’s opera, tailored for Dickinson voice students in the Lyric Performance Practicum. Humperdinck’s music contains charming German folk songs for children while being richly expressive – almost Wagnerian.
Dickinson’s performance of Hansel and Gretel is being performed in English with piano and some dialogue; however, we have strived to maintain the integrity of this classic piece. Two performances of Hansel and Gretel will take place next week in Rubendall Recital Hall, Weiss center for the Arts, on Friday, February 14 at 7pm, and on Sunday, February 16 at 4pm. Admission is free, and all are welcome.
