Opera North 'Whistle Stop': Hansel & Gretel

Burton Constable Hall celebrates opening for the 2017 season with a unique evening of music and heritage, with a performance of 'Whistle Stop' Opera Hansel & Gretel performed by Opera North singers and an exclusive preview of Burton Constable Hall before it opens to visitors on 15 April.

Discover the enchanting world of Hansel & Gretel with this brand new condensed version of Engelbert Humperdinck's bewitching masterpiece, performed by members of Opera North in the glorious setting of the Great Hall at Burton Constable Hall. 

Performed by a team of professional singers and actors, journey through the woods and gorge yourself on the exciting twists and turns of the plot as you meet the characters along the way - just beware of the evil witch, and don't stray too far from your tour guide - you never know what trickery you may encounter along the way..... 

There will be an opportunity to chat to the artists in a Q&A session after the 30 minute performance.

After the performance you will be able to take an exclusive preview tour of the Hall before it opens to the general public on April 15th. Discover impressive interiors and fine collections, including the remarkable 18th century 'Cabinet of Curiosities' on your exploration of this Elizabethan gem. Take a peek into the newly restored Carved Room, to be seen for the first time following twenty years of research, incorporating exquisite original and recreated wood carving.

Doors open at 6.30pm for performance at 7pm
