Cambridge Youth Opera’s story
CYO's new production of Hansel and Gretel, complete is a fantastic project which involves around 150 children and young people in bringing this magical opera to life. Alongside our company of young singers, designers, stage managers and technicians, we are working with seven schools in our most ambitious project to date. All activities are completely free to participants.
Performances take place in the Storey’s Field Centre, Eddington, on 28 and 29 March. Set in a fantastical forest where anything can happen, this beautiful, funny, sometimes dark story is suitable for all ages. Booking will open in February via the CYO website.
