Let's Talk Opera
with Ash Khandekar, Editor of 'Opera Now' Magazine
Sunday 29th June - FREE EVENT
As a pre Frome Festival taster, we welcome Ash Khandekar who will give an accessible and entertaining discussion prior to our in-house production of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel - a collaborative production between Cooper Hall Emerging Artists Opera Workshop and Bath Philharmonia.

The pre-festival talk be a forum where I will be discussing the process of putting together the production of Hansel & Gretel with Morag and members of the cast. We'll be talking about themes contained within the opera: the relationship between parents and children, poverty and hunger, dreams and transformations. Hansel and Gretel is, on the surface, a simple fairytale, but it has many layers of meaning that we will attempt to peel back, with the help of some wonderful singing and music from the opera.” AK

A treat for opera novices and opera buffs alike, the talk is suitable for all ages and is FREE!

Times: 18:00
Tickets: FREE
Book: Past event
Other: A bar by donation will be available. No Stilettos Please.
