SUSOxPacific Opera Present: Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel


SUSOxPacific Opera Present: Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel

This October long weekend, young singers from Pacific Opera’s boutique opera training studio will be tackling Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel opera.

The action onstage will be directed by renowned Sydney-based director, Kate Gaul, who is excited for the challenges that the work presents.

"It is with great pleasure that I return to Pacific Opera to direct this bewitching opera,” Gaul said. “The story of Hansel and Gretel is possibly well known and in this operatic version, the audience is transported into a spellbinding, haunted forest full of spirits, including a Dew Fairy, a Sandman, and a spooky witch.”

Led by young up-and-coming conductor, Luke Spicer, the singers will be ably supported by the musicians of the Sydney University Symphony Orchestra, in their opera debut.
