A delectable opera performance that’s as tasty as a candy treat! 

Once upon a time not so (la – ti – do!) long ago, there were two cheerful singers who wanted to tell the tale of Hansel and Gretel, set to music. Their mischievous pal tried to lend them a helping hand, but he was so greedy and easily distracted that his foot—or is that candy?—would always end up in his mouth… 

What could they do to keep his attention on the task at hand? How about giving him an important role to play in the story? Relive the tale savoured by candy lovers everywhere in this fanciful, playful concert.
