Hansel & Gretel Outdoor Opera Coming to Hull



An outdoor and socially distanced opera is taking place at Stage@TheDock on Hull Marina in September.

Hansel and Gretel, from Whistle Stop Opera, will retell the fairy tale of two hungry children, lost in the woods, and a gingerbread cottage that hides a scary secret.

Performed by a small group of professional singers and accompanied by accordion, this mini production is the perfect opportunity to experience the magic of opera.

Devised by John Savournin for four singers and accordion, social distancing will be in place for audience members and performers, and a limited number of tickets will be on sale in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines.

The opera will take place at Stage@The Dock on Wednesday 2 September. Ticket details will be announced by Opera North in due course, find out more information here.

Stage@TheDock is a pioneering cultural and community venue situated within Hull’s Fruit Market development. As a former central dry dock, the venue was developed by Wykeland in 2016 to provide a unique 350-seat amphitheatre setting.
