Opera Theatre of Montclair Presents Hansel and Gretel
September 22, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$10 – $50
Opera Theatre of Montclair is proud to present its fifth full mainstage production, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel on Saturdays, September 22 and 29, and Sundays, September 23 and 30, 4 PM. This fully-staged, costumed production is the perfect introduction to opera for all ages and will also be enjoyable for veteran opera fans.
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.
It 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.

As a unique service, Central Presbyterian Church will offer a “Cry Room” for younger children who may need a break from the performance – this will enable the parents and child to return to the show instead of automatically going home. Childcare will not be provided.
The intermission concessions will be sponsored by four extraordinary local businesses: Gelotti of Montclair, Vanillamore of Montclair, Rudy’s Pastry Shop of Bloomfield and Liv Breads of Millburn.
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.
