Event Description

Hansel & Gretel, Amahl & the Night Visitors

General Admission: $10
Student/Senior: $5

UTRGV Opera Theater presents a double bill performance of two classic operas, Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel and Menotti’s Amahl & the Night Visitors. This production of Hansel and Gretel is the story of two hungry siblings, lost in the woods during el Dia de los Muertos, who must work together to escape an evil witch. Amahl & the Night Visitors also explores a child’s resilience and determination. In this opera, the Christmas story comes to life through the tale of Amahl and his mother as they experience miracles of generosity, healing and love. These timeless stories will be told in productions featuring Mexican folk traditions, settings, and costumes. Both operas will be performed in English. 2 hours with one 15-minute intermission.

Both operas deal with issues of food insecurity. As a response to this subject matter and as a celebration of the holiday spirit of giving, UTRGV Opera will host a Food Pantry & Coat Drive. Items will be collected in the lobby before each performance. Please bring a canned good or gently used coat to donate if you are able. To view a list of items in high demand, visit:
