Opera Under the Stars: Hänsel und Gretel

Following an incredibly successful 2017 tour, Pop-up Opera brings this wonderful family-friendly production to Winchester Science Centre. 

Making full use of the 360 degree domed screen of the planetarium the audience will enjoy and immersive performance that’s both magical and dark. Brother and sister Hansel and Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch. In the dizzying excitement of the Witch’s Ride and the serene beauty of the children’s evening prayer, Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story. A story that will enchant and thrill, a wintry delight.

Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company which aims to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making it intimate and engaging.
