ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Hansel & Gretel at Canadian Opera Company is directed by Joel Ivany and conducted by Johannes Debus.
"This Hansel & Gretel is a modern fairytale: Canadian director Joel Ivany — founder of acclaimed indie opera company Against the Grain Theatre — puts a new spin on Humperdinck’s winter favourite with innovative digital storytelling and video projections that usher this classic straight into present-day Toronto. Hansel & Gretel’s music combines nursery rhymes with rustic folk tunes, making it an accessible first opera for children and adults alike. Yet it’s also layered with orchestral complexity inspired by Richard Wagner, the German composer who revolutionized opera in the 19th century. " -Canadian Opera Company
