UTRGV Opera Theatre presents a double bill performance of two classic operas, Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel and Menotti’s Amahl & the Night Visitors. This production of Hansel and Gretel is the story of two hungry siblings, lost in the woods during el Dia de los Muertos, who must work together to escape an evil witch. Amahl & the Night Visitors also explores a child’s resilience and determination. In this opera, the Christmas story comes to life through the tale of Amahl and his mother as they experience miracles of generosity, healing and love. These timeless stories will be told in productions featuring Mexican folk traditions, settings, and costumes. Both operas will be performed in English. 2 hours with one 15-minute intermission.
