Hansel and Gretel - Saturday 7th October - 7.30pm
We are delighted to welcome back Popup Opera to the barns on Saturday 7th October with their unique performance of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. Peformance starts at 7.30pm but you are welcome to bring a picnic and something to drink to enjoy beforehand from 6.0pm (we provide tables and chairs which will all be inside a warm barn, so no braving the autumnal weather!).
'Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all. Brother and sister Hansel & Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch. In the dizzying excitement of the Witch’s Ride and the serene beauty of the children’s evening prayer, Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story. A story that will enchant and thrill, a wintry delight".
We highly recommend that you buy your tickets as early as possible since Popup's reputation is growing enormously and we sold out two weeks ahead, last time they visited us.
