Whistle Stop Opera: Hansel and Gretel

18 August – 5 September

This event has passed.

Discover the enchanting world of Hansel and Gretel with our pop-up performance of Humperdinck’s bewitching masterpiece.

Journey through the woods and gorge yourself on the exciting twists and turns of the plot as you meet the characters along the way. Just beware of the evil witch, and don’t stray too far from your tour guide – you never know what trickery you may encounter along the way…

Performed by a small group of professional singers and accompanied by accordion, this mini production is the perfect opportunity to experience the magic of opera.

Performances will be held outside with performers and audiences socially-distanced. Tickets are limited in accordance with government guidance. Areas for up to a maximum of 5 people are available to book, each area will contain two chairs and one large mat to sit or stand on. Please see our Covid safety measures. As we all know the weather in England can be unpredictable, so we recommend dressing for the weather and bringing waterproofs just in case.
