Opera at Waterperry Gardens

We are delighted to announce that we will be performing for the second time this year at Waterperry – this time with our brand new production of Hansel & Gretel, to take place on Sunday 15th September at 2pm in the amazing amphitheatre.

Opera Anywhere’s spell-binding new production of Humperdinck’s masterpiece takes for inspiration one of the darker and less well-known stories of evacuee children in wartime Britain. The children escape from their grim new reality into their book, which is where the magic begins… With its new take on an enduring and heartening tale of triumph in adversity, this is a rich interpretation that brings Humperdinck’s sumptuous, late-Romantic score to life in vivid technicolour. Expect an enchanting afternoon that the whole family will enjoy.
