Part of British Youth Opera's guest season at Opera Holland Park
Choose your own adventure – either follow Hansel and Gretel on their exciting journey through the deserted theatre as they discover hidden games, treasures and doorways. Or, choose to watch the adults growing concern for their children as they confront their own fears about the world we now find ourselves in.
Escape to the magical world of Hansel and Gretel where nothing is as it seems. Watch the backdrop of Holland Park transform into an abandoned theatre full of magic and intrigue for the children to explore, where all that glitters might not be gold.
Silent Opera and British Youth Opera present a brand-new interpretation of Humperdinck’s classic, combining live performance with pre-recorded orchestra, delivered to you on your own individual set of wireless headphones. Sit in a single location, choose which audio channel to tune in to, and watch as the action springs up around you.
All headphones are carefully sanitised in between each performance. This is a non-traditional layout – although the audience is strictly socially distanced and fixed, the action takes place in 360 degrees throughout the theatre. Headphones with a hearing loop system for audience members that are hard of hearing are available upon request.
