HUMPERDINCK: Scenes from Hansel and Gretel (performed in English)

Enjoy a concert for the whole family with a special, hour-long version of Engelbert Humperdinck's beloved opera Hansel and Gretel, the classic tale of two siblings walking through the dark and foreboding woods and their daring escape from the evil witch and her gingerbread house of sweets.

Conducted by Daniel Alfred Wachs, the Orange County Youth Symphony is joined by dancers and sets from the Anaheim Ballet, and lending song to story are leading soloists including mezzo-soprano Milena Kitic as The Witch, mezzo-soprano Lacey Jo Benter as Hansel, and soprano Jacquelynne Fontaine as Gretel, as well as singers from the Orange County School of the Arts Concert Choir.

Join us in the lobby prior to the performance for hands-on activities, including a musical instrument petting zoo courtesy of the Philharmonic Society's Music Mobile, arts and crafts, photo booth, demonstrations and an appearance by Santa!
