Hansel and Gretel

A loving mother, stressed by poverty, sends her children, Hansel and Gretel, deep into a dark forest to forage for food during a fit of temper. Soon after, she is racked with remorse upon realizing the dangers they might encounter.

The brother and sister—lost, afraid, hungry—wander in circles until they stumble upon a cottage. But this is no ordinary cottage. In place of bricks and mortar, its walls are made of cake and candy, and instead of a friendly forest dweller, the Gingerbread Witch emerges. She uses her palace of sweets to lure in the children and fatten them up so they’ll make a fine meal. Using their bravery and wit, the children work to escape her clutches and burn off the calories they’ve eaten before beach season, encountering fairies, trolls, and hobgoblins along the way.

Opera Mariposa

Opera Mariposa's mission is in its name. Taking its title from the Spanish word for "butterfly," the company aims to inspire talented and promising young performers to shed their literal cocoons and morph into the stars of tomorrow. It's the vision of soprano Jacqueline Ko, who set out to spotlight up-and-coming talent from throughout North America. Under her artistic direction, artists share both original and time-honoured pieces, ranging from revues of Broadway numbers to stagings of eighteenth-century works. It's an approach that has won acclaim from audiences and critics alike—Glass City remarked, "perhaps one of the most charming aspects of Opera Mariposa, is the sincere desire of those involved to break their audience’s preconceived notions, and to share their passion" and one of the young company's productions was hailed as "a masterpiece" by Review Vancouver, while The Voice called another "a stroke of genius."
