Find out what the critics thought of our new staging of Hansel and Gretel, the latest film in our Scottish Opera: On Screen series.
Hugh Canning from The Sunday Times spoke to Daisy Evans about her varied career in opera, and staging Humperdinck's classic, Hansel and Gretel. Mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately, who sings Hansel in the production, spoke to The Scotsman about creating opera during the pandemic.
We caught up with Beth Hicks, former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Costume Trainee and now Costume Supervisor for our upcoming staging of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. She was part of the team that created the costume for our over-the-top, Christmas-crazed Witch, and she talks about the challenges of making this distinctive dress.
We caught up with Daisy Evans (The Telephone 2020) and to tell us more about her vision for this fun, inventive new staging of Hansel & Gretel. The free digital Hansel and Gretel programme will be available next week, including artist biographies and articles on our most recent addition to Scottish Opera: On Screen, which premieres on Wednesday 10 February at 6pm.
We are thrilled to be starting 2021 with the news that our first Opera Short, The Narcissistic Fish, has received a Classical Music Digital Award.
