Hansel and Gretel Sneak Peek 04

By Open Air Theatre

H&G Rehearsal blog

With preparations well under way for Hansel and Gretel, our co-production with English National Opera, we take you behind the scenes with photos from the rehearsal room.

With one week remaining in ENO’s Hampstead studios, Hansel and Gretel features two casts alternating at each performance, including Alasdair Elliott and John Findon who share the role of the witch. We have also partnered with a local charity, Pimlico Musical Foundation (PMF), who give children from Pimlico access to participate in music. Visit our blog to find out more about the charitable work of PMF. We are excited to welcome these children to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, and to give them this unique opportunity of appearing alongside world-class opera singers in this beautiful production.

With just 10 performances (14 -22 June), don’t miss your chance to experience Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera outdoors.
