Award-Winning young vocalists presents modernized opera “Hansel & Gretel”.
Young Artists Music Program (YAMP), the pre-college division of College of Music, Mahidol University, steps up its game to present Hansel & Gretel in the first full-scale production of an opera by a high school in Thailand after the immense success of last year’s musical West Side Story.
This opera will be sung in English. A must-see performance from the school’s award-winning young musicians and vocalists!
Nineteenth-century composer Engelbert Humperdinck turned the classic story into an opera hailed by the New York Times as “one of the sweetest yet most lushly captivating scores in the entire operatic repertory.”
The performance will be under the helm of Pattarasuda Anuman Rajadhon, an esteemed opera director whose previous works include Poulenc’s Les mamelles de Tiresias, Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas, The Three penny Opera, Mulan and A Thousand and One Night.
She aims to take Hansel & Gretel in a new direction.
“The siblings are children from a poor slum family, who get lost literally and metaphorically in the hustle and bustle of a concrete jungle. They get lured into child labour at a factory owned by a charming yet evil business woman. We are transforming the whole YAMP building into one dashing metropolis for this show.”
All actors and musicians involved in this production are high school students of Young Artist Music Program. Young as they are, most of the performers have already won notable awards for young vocalists, both nationally and internationally.
