HANSEL AND GRETEL (article first published : 2003-11-17)

Bookings have opened for Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, which is to be presented in the Playhouse Loft Theatre by the University of Natal Opera School and Choral Academy, in association with The Playhouse Company from December 3 to 28.

Hansel and Gretel is a timeless tale of trust, suspicion and revenge performed by a highly professional cast, several of whom have recently returned from a tour of New York. The production has been described by director Brenda Lauth and conductor David Smith as “an opera with a difference”. This introduction to opera is ideal for young audiences as it is accessible and remains true to the authentic story while still satisfying the taste of traditional opera lovers.

The show includes recognisable tunes that will keep audiences humming along while they are intrigued by the myriad of sparkling costumes and charming sets. This vivid production captures Hansel and Gretel’s magical atmosphere and is guaranteed to delight audience old and young.

Tickets R25. Book at Computicket. Further information or block booking discounts from Eubulus Tracy on 082 877 4627 or e-mail: eubulustracy@yahoo.com
