Friday Musicale: Englebert Humperdinck’s “ Hansel and Gretel”

Fri, Jan 20, 2017 12:45 pm - 2:45 pm

Friday Musicale: Englebert Humperdinck’s “ Hansel and Gretel” will be watched.
Although originally composed as short piece for Humperdinck’s small children and family to enjoy, this Grimm’s Brothers fairy tale put to music became a full length opera very popular with the public back in 1893. Much of the music is based on popular songs and rhythms that are accessible to ordinary listeners. Until recently it has been a custom to perform the opera as a matinee, for children at Christmastime. But its musical sophistication can best be appreciated by adult audiences. Hosted by Rosemary Cancian and Barbara Dillon. Cost: Free.
