Interactive Opera, 
Hansel and Gretel
(at the Queens Museum & The Queens Library)

Music by Engelbert Humperdinck 

-  Edited by Anna Etsuko Tsuri-

Come take a journey into the magic forest with Hansel and Gretel. If you lose your way, a good fairy will help you, and if you’re lucky, a gingerbread house awaits you! Can you guess who is waiting inside? This interactive production includes the opportunity for you to learn songs and dances and use homemade props—including strawberries and flowers—to participate in the show. You never know when Hansel and Gretel might come up to you to ask for your help, and you may even have the chance to play the part of the Witch during the second act, complete with a witch hat, cape, and broom!
