Hansel and Gretel
Washington National Opera Open Rehearsal
Treat yourself to a delicious musical retelling of a famous Grimm fairytale. In this operatic forest, magic and adventure lurk around every corner—and holiday sweets can have a nasty bite. Complete with a cackling witch, enchanted fairies, dancing animals, and an oversized gingerbread oven, this timeless tale comes to life on stage in this whimsical, neon-colored production.
The Student Rehearsal Program introduces school students to opera by giving them the opportunity to witness firsthand the final rehearsals of Washington National Opera’s main stage productions.
