Friday 12th July 2024 – 7pm

Opera in a Box are excited to return to the South West with the mischievous fairytale opera, Hansel & Gretel. This wonderful family piece, sung in English, tells the classic story through music, magic and, of course, gingerbread!

Join us as we bring the enchanting tale of Hansel and Gretel to life in a fresh and innovative production. Say goodbye to your preconceptions about opera as we take you on a journey through off-the-wall venues and intimate adaptations of classic works.

Opera in a Box is a touring opera company in the South West of the UK aimed at bringing the opera genre to as wide an audience as possible. Take all of your preconceptions about opera and throw them out of the window as Opera in a Box takes opera in fresh and exciting artistic directions, from off-the-wall venues, to intimate adaptations of large-scale works. We are focussed on gathering young and talented individuals from across all areas of the arts, and bringing them together to create innovative and gripping theatre.
