35 minute reduced version of Humperdinck's opera Hansel and Gretel for children.

This is an amazing project between two graduates from New England Conservatory who founded Due Donne Productions. Using the Nintendo game platform Animal Crossing: New Horizons they created the set, costumes, props, and staging similarly to the way it would be created in real life. By using a capture card to record the scenes within the game, they are able to layer the newly recorded vocal and piano lines over the staging to produce the opera.

This is free with a suggested donation and 75% of the proceeds will go to the NEC to help the cost of tuition for BIPOC singers.
