Lent Week 1
Based on the Grimm fairytale of the same name, Humperdinck's opera transports us into the magical world of two children's imaginations. Sent away by their desperate mother to find food, they encounter a Sandman, a Dew Fairy and a child-catching witch in a song sparkled, dream woven sequence of adventure.
This semi-staged production will be brought to life by director Anna Moody with costume and set dreamt up by Ciaran Walsh. It will be performed in the English translation by Constance Bache with an outstanding cast and The Empyrean Ensemble conducted by Edward Reeve.
