Opera Queensland Hansel and Gretel Workshop
Searching for something exciting to take the kids to these school holidays? West Village has got you covered with this Hansel and Gretel Workshop held by Opera Queensland and shake & stir theatre co, which is set to transport little ones to a magical world of fairies and sweets with its enchanting story of survival and family bonds.
Here’s the age-old tale – Hansel and Gretel are on a journey into the forest. They’re searching for food for the family table but what they discover is far more appealing … do they dare taste the sweet facade of the gingerbread house?
So what does the fun-filled day entail? You’ll watch a video of the Hansel and Gretel opera, which stars three of Opera Queensland’s young performers. In between watching the short film, Hansel (played by Mezzo Soprano Jessica Low) and Gretel (played by Soprano Irena Lysiuk) will teach some of the spectacular songs and a special dance from the production. The kids will then get to know the characters as well as the artists who play them while they take the children through some drama and acting activities experimenting through play.
These workshops run from Monday July 6 to Thursday July 9. Tickets are $15 per child and includes a delicious bento box morning tea by Cheeky Poke. Be quick and grab your tickets here.
