Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel - Grange Park Opera (Dew Fairy)

Engelbert Humperdinck’s masterpiece  is far more than just a fairy tale. It presents the haunting themes of the unsettling Grimm story with enchanting music that has earned it the status of one of the most loved operas in the repertoire. The witch is played by Susan Bullock, who has sung Wagner the world over, returns to the Theatre in the Woods to terrify Hansel and Gretel and to bewitch you.

Cavalli's La Calisto - Longborough Festival Opera (Destino)

  • Longborough Festival Opera (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

After Monteverdi, Cavalli was Venice's leading composer. His strikingly expressive La Calisto is based on the mythical story from Greek legend. This is a comic yet poignant tale of twisted relationships between gods, women and men, in which Juno, jealous of Jupiter's desire, turns Calisto into a bear. This new orchestration by Lesley Anne is rescored for the Barefoot Band of clarinet, accordion, harpsichord, double bass and recorders.
