Berlin: Hansel und Gretel at Deutsche Oper

Hänsel und Gretel. Deutsche Oper Berlin, December 16th. Production: Andreas Homoki. Cast: Fionnula McCarthy and Ulrike Henzel.

In brief: If you have kids, take them to see this. If not: Take somebody elses kids. It is a kids performance - and a good one at that. The auditorium was filled up with kids between 3-10 and their parents for this Sunday afternoon performance at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin.

Andreas Homoki´s staging is simple and effective. The kids screamed of fear when the witch appeared and adequatly booed him at curtain calls. Fresh singing and convincing acting of the siblings by Fionnula McCarthy and Ulrike Henzel.
