Exposing your children to world-class art is one of the main benefits of living in NYC. The Metropolitan Opera is putting on Hansel and Gretel this holiday and savvy parents are snapping up tickets (did you know family circle tickets start at $20?). We're giving you a chance to win two seats to the premier performance.
Want to create an opera lover? Share a performance based on a story your child knows, at a gorgeous location and make them feel grown-up and important--your there.
Finding creative ways to share art and music with your children has never been more crucial. Budgets are being slashed for these programs at both private and public schools. Parents need to make an effort to open up the world of music to their children and this charming opera is an inspired first step. Miah Persson and Angelika Kirchschlager are the lost siblings. Philip Langridge reprises his outlandish portrayal of the Witch in Humperdincks take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Sung in English and conducted by Fabio Luisi. Approximate running time 2 hrs. 15 min.
