About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Cape Town's breathtaking Artscape Theatre Centre for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of opera.
This opera has become one of the very few operas on a children’s tale that has achieved popularity with adults as well as children. It is unusual in that the roles of both of the children, as well as the other leads, save for the children’s father, are all sung by women. While the opera is based on a children’s tale, this Cape Town Opera production draws on a darker, richer emotional palette than the usual productions of the work. Cape Town Opera Young Artists Brittany Smith will sing the role of Gretel, Ane Pretorius will be Hansel, and returning South African Jenni Bank will appear as both the children’s mother and the witch.
