Hansel and Gretel (Work-in-progress)

Hansel and Gretel (family opera version)

 

Music by Engelbert Humperdinck 

-  Edited by Anna Etsuko Tsuri-

 

The production is based on the concept of “To Have a life feeling close to your five senses, and integration with the audience and the performers.”  The auditorium is decorated and the seats are rearranged as if we were part of the world of “Hansel and Gretel”.  The audience’s role is as “forest trees and berry bushes” with translucent leafs, flowers, berries and magic sand.  The singers walk and sing among them, sharing the play and the experience of witch magic with the audience!
