Hansel & Gretel
The Houston Opera to Go presented Hansel & Gretel to us at the San Jacinto Community Center a few weeks ago, and it was wonderful! They are superbly talented, and it was fantastic to be able to host them again. This past spring they presented Romeo & Juliet as well. The Hansel & Gretel story brought a fairy tale to life for the children, adults & seniors in attendance. Afterwards, they took questions regarding their own start in opera as well as the origins of the Hansel & Gretel story. They also made sure to explain to the children what opera is since this was the first time for many of those attending. The performance was an abbreviated version of an opera, being only about 45 minutes. We hope to host them again sometime, so be sure to keep up with our current events!
