Review Quotations

Opera Cleveland serves up a hearty and graceful "Hansel and Gretel". Chuck Hudson's fluid staging kept the events moving blissfully along, with fine attention to characterization and atmosphere...the inventive episode during the pantomime featuring Hansel and Gretel's deceased mother (danced by Lisa L. Lock) added psychological resonance.

Director Chuck Hudson and conductor Dean Williamson do an excellent job with the opera...Although much of the show is directed to children, the story has adult themes. Hudson and Williamson succeed in offering a fine production to both children and adults.
