Gretel & Hansel

The 60 Minute Opera team has arranged Humperdinck’s score as a 60 minute interactive performance with  a new, up-to-date translation. Alongside some of Adelaide’s finest professional and up-and-coming singers, the performance is greatly enhanced by the sung contribution of its audience!

60 Minute Opera brings the live experience of music and theatre to a wider audience by involving them actively in the performance. Gretel & Hansel provides a high quality introduction to the world of opera for school students and general public alike, and an excellent performance opportunity for South Australia’s emerging singers.

Presented in association with The State Opera of South Australia
