The Friday, February 21 performance is an Encore! young professional event

Who said that fairy tales are just for kids? This timeless Brothers Grimm favorite is both delightful and haunting, making it an operatic experience for the entire family. All ages will be delighted by the creatures of the forest, brought to life through the magic of the puppetry of the Zoot Theatre Company as well as an over-the-top Witch played by one of our favorite guest singers and directors, Gary Briggle. Opera devotees will revel in the lush and sophisticated score by German composer Engelbert Humperdinck (not to be confused with the British pop singer of the same name who recorded "Release Me" and "Delilah"). Don't miss your opportunity to experience this remarkable fantasy as it comes to life on the Mead stage.
