The only thing more magical than the story is the music in Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. Now Solo Opera presents a charming new production of Humperdinck's timeless masterpiece as a part of its Storybook Opera series, featuring collaborations with the Contra Costa Children's Chorus (performing as the Gingerbread Children) and dancers from The Next Step Dance Studio (performing as the Fourteen Angel Ballet). No matter how familiar you may be with this story of two siblings wandering through an enchanted forest, this "fairy tale opera" still has the power to amaze and even move. Follow two intrepid youngsters as they come face to face with a witch whose appetite is truly "childish" in this English-language holiday presentation at Del Valle Theatre.
Solo Opera is partnering with Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano for their performances. Nonperishable food items will be collected at the shows and donated to the Food Bank’s cause. You’re invited to bring an item, if you wish!
