Aspen Music Festival: Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel



Klein Music Tent, 960 N 3rd Street, Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"See talented singers from the Aspen Opera Theater and Vocal ARTS program and a full orchestra conducted by Houston Grand Opera director Patrick Summers in a semi-staged performance of the beloved fairy-tale opera Hansel and Gretel. Humperdinck began his career as an assistant to Wagner, and while you may detect many of the lessons he learned from his hero, there’s also a lightness that was Humperdinck’s own. He successfully balances the darker aspects of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale with humor and charm, making this perfect entertainment for both children and adults. Enjoy the magic of Humperdinck’s opera at this one-night-only performance!"
