Portland Opera To Go presents Hansel and Gretel

Hungry for something sweet to sink your teeth into this fall?

Each year Portland Opera To Go serves between 17-20,000 students throughout Oregon and SW Washington with our lively 50-minute English-language presentations of classic operas. This year we are so pleased to present a lively, bright, magical adaptation of Humperdinck’s sweet-natured, toothsome fairy-tale opera, Hansel and Gretel.

Our delectable re-telling of Humperdinck’s classic fairy-tale opera, Hansel and Gretel includes all of the familiar elements: two lost children, desperate parents, a child-gobbling witch, paired with a whimsical set, adorable costumes and some of the best young voices the Northwest has to offer! This is one opera experience that goes down as easy as cake and ice cream! Enjoyed by audiences of all ages, POGO’s performances are targeted for students kindergarten through 5th grades.
