The Festival d’opéra de Québec is pursuing its mission to introduce young people to opera with a performance this year by Jeunesses Musicales Canada titled Opera-Candy: The Gourmet Adventure of Hansel and Gretel. This fun, whimsical concert revisits a tale adored by candy lovers everywhere. What better way to discover one of the most satisfying art forms in the world: opera!

Once upon a time there lived two cheerful singers who wished to tell the story of Hansel and Gretel through music. Their mischievous friend wanted to help, but he was so greedy and easily distracted that he kept putting his foot in his mouth—or was it candy? The two singers tried to think of a way to keep him focused, and then it came to them—what if they gave him an important role in the story?

AN ACTIVITY RESERVED FOR DAYCAMPS OF THE PATROS
IN THE QUÉBEC REGION.

This event will be presented again at the Palais Montcalm on December 4, at 9:30AM and 1:30PM.
