Opera Theatre Of Montclair Presents HANSEL AND GRETEL
Opera Theatre of Montclair presents its fifth full mainstage production, Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. This fully-staged, costumed production will be sung in an English translation (from the original German). The show will run approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes with two short intermissions. The 23-piece orchestra will be conducted by Maestro Elizabeth Hastings. The production is double cast with OTM's all-professional singers. Local young singers make up the chorus of Gingerbread Children and the Angels corps de ballet (many of whom are students at Sharron Miller's Academy for the Performing Arts). Stage direction is by Stacey Canterbury Climie, choreography is by Conny Andres and set design is by David Gillam and Joyce Korotkin.
OTM is the 2018 Winner of the Jersey Arts People's Choice Award as New Jersey's Favorite Opera Company. It is also the first non-New York City-based opera company to be invited to join the New York Opera Alliance.
The performances will take place in the landmark Central Presbyterian Church in Montclair Center (handicapped accessible) located steps from many of Montclair's renowned restaurants and shops. Street parking as well as space in several municipal lots and garages will be available. Refreshments (including wine and goodies from several local pastry shops) will be sold at intermissions.
This family-friendly production will serve as an excellent introduction to opera and will also be enjoyed by the veteran opera fan. As a unique service to parents with younger children, Central Presbyterian Church will offer a "Cry Room" so that the parent and child may be able to return to the show instead of needing to go home. Childcare will not be provided.
