In 2018 many adults and children alike have trodden the mosaics of the Opéra Comique for the first time during “Mon premier festival d’opéra” (My first opera festival). In 2019 this event is back with three productions intended for families as an introduction to the delights of music and singing. The Opéra Comique is doing its best to make these moments an unforgettable experience and offers a playful introduction before performances and the opportunity to meet the artists.

French adaptation by Henri-Alexis Baatsch and Sergio Menozzi, premiered in Lyon on 14 December 1995

Gretel and Hansel are two happy children despite the poverty of their parents. While picking strawberries, they get lost in the forest where lives a terribly greedy witch.

The famous Grimms’ tale inspired Humperdinck, an emulator of Wagner, to write a magical and funny opera still very popular in Germany. This rearranged and simplified classic of the repertoire will appeal to the patrons of the Salle Favart thanks to its French translation and its interpretation by young vocalists of the Maîtrise Populaire de l’Opéra Comique.

Direction musicale et mise en scène, Sarah Koné • Décors, Roberta Chiarito • Costumes, Lucie Guillemet • Chorégraphie, Christine Bonneton • Avec La Maîtrise Populaire de l’Opéra Comique
