Hansel and Gretel

Music by Engelbert Humperdinck and Libretto by Adelaid Wette

Dale F. Halton Theater—November 17, 18 and 19

The iconic adventure of Hansel and Gretel comes to life on the CPCC Central Campus Halton Stage this Fall.  The Brothers Grimm fairytale combined with the lush late 19th century Romantic music of Engelbert Humperdinck will be a delightful holiday start for the whole family!!

Sung in English with supertitles

The Elixir of Love

Music by Gaetano Donizetti and Libretto by Felice Romani

Dale F. Halton Theater – April 6, 7 and 8

L’elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love) will be performed on the Halton Stage for the first time in CPCC Opera Theatre’s 20 year history.  In this endearing comic opera, a love- sick Nemorino buys the dubious Dr. Dulcamara’s magic potion (it’s really just wine) in order to win the beautiful Adina’s heart.  It’s a hilarious party for your laughter and a delicious musical feast for your senses!!

Sung in English with supertitles

“OPERA LOVERS IGNORE the current generation of CPCC Opera Theatre productions at their peril….. this was a production that deserved to play to a capacity house. Maybe by next season, word-of-mouth will catch up with the quality of opera at Halton.”(Creative Loafing review of The Marriage of Figaro by Perry Tannenbaum – May 2007)
“A phenomenal find at CPCC Opera Theatre’s The Tales of Hoffmann”
“CP’s production …..a revelation to those who have never seen Offenbach’s tuneful crowdpleaser here.”
(Excerpts from a Creative Loafing Online Review by Perry Tannenbaum of CPCC Opera Theatre’s production of The Tales of Hoffmann—January 27, 2009)
