Children have missed out on field trips, sporting events, and even singing together in the classroom, but Opera for the Young’s Hansel & Gretel: The Interactive Film Edition will ensure that students don’t miss the experience of OPERA this school year. Our quality virtual content will provide students with a valuable theatrical experience despite school closures and rules prohibiting visitors.


Schools have been hit hard, and we’ve reduced our school fees drastically to ease their burden this season. Our own touring expenses have been replaced with the expense of creating a feature film: green screens, lighting, filming and editing. Careful planning and execution has allowed our artists to record safely without risking their health for their art: each artist performed in the safety of their home (or studio) and all alone, using a green screen and light set-up provided by Opera for the Young. Accomplishing our mission to ignite enthusiasm for opera in children is not without its challenges this season, but with a creative adaptable spirit, and most importantly, YOUR SUPPORT, Opera for the Young’s Hansel & Gretel will be a magical success.
