POP returned to one of our most beloved venues, high atop Glendale, outdoors at Forest Lawn Cemetery for a sold-out run of Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. This operatic take on the Brothers Grimm tale is ideal for audiences of all ages, and with 5pm start times this is the perfect way to introduce kids to opera. It’s the story we all know and love, brought to life with a magical score by Englebert Humperdinck. Sung in English, with orchestra.
