Event Description

Resonance Works joins forces with Opera Ithaca to ring in holiday cheer with a new film version of Engelbert Humperdinck’s beloved opera, Hansel & Gretel.The film is an innovative reimagining of the 19th-century original: Hansel and Gretel, lost in the woods, stumble upon the set of a celebrity pastry chef’s cooking show, where they are invited to be the guest stars (and main ingredients!).

The film’s all-star cast includes sopranos Meghan Kasanders (Staastoper Hannover, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis) and Marlen Nahhas (Washington National Opera Cafritz Young Artist), mezzo-soprano Annie Rosen (Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago), and baritone Mario Diaz-Moresco (Chautauqua Opera), and a special partnership with the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus. Resonance Works’ Artistic Director Maria Sensi Sellner leads an octet of Resonance Chamber Orchestra players, in an orchestration originally created for Houston Grand Opera by Kathleen Kelly.

Our LIVE PREMIERE EVENT on Saturday December 18 at 3pm at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater will feature live performances by members of the Resonance Chamber Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus preceding the film premiere.
