SHSU Opera Presents: Hansel & Gretel
In anticipation of the holiday season, SHSU Opera will present Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel on November 3-4, with a family matinee performance scheduled for November 5. Composed in 1892, this full-length, fairy tale opera is based on a collection of German children’s songs and dances written by the composer’s sister in honor of Christmas. Prior to the matinee performance, there will a reading of the “Hansel and Gretel” story, followed by a special craft project with the SHSU Sam Choral Educators organization. All children who attend the opera will also have the opportunity to participate in a special part of the opera as well.
