Set in the industrialized 1950s, Hansel and Gretel are latch-key kids to a depressed mother and overworked father. The witch runs a stainless-steel kitchen with modern gadgets and a glass-door oven. One hopes it's the self-cleaning kind.
Returning for the holidays, this season's family entertainment is Richard Jones's witty production of Humperdinck's fairy-tale opera, conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, in which two children face off against a wicked witch. In a lush setting of giant chefs, suit-clad trees, and an industrial kitchen where the Witch gets what's coming to her, Aleksandra Kurzak as Gretel and Christine Rice as Hansel will lead a visual and delightful feast for our patrons.
Originally created for Welsh National Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago.
Ground for Sculpture Lecture at Princeton
Thursday, January 8, 3:00—5:00 pm Carl Fields Center - Multipurpose Room
Please join us on January 8 to meet volunteers from the Grounds For Sculpture, see amazing images, and deliberate sculpture. A lecture hall visual presentation will be presented in warmth and comfort here at Princeton. The objective is to enlighten and entice us to discover and explore the GFS ourselves when the weather becomes more pleasing. Refreshments will be served.
Grounds For Sculpture was established in 1992 to promote an understanding of and appreciation for contemporary sculpture for all people by:
• maintaining a 42-acre sculpture park composed of works by well-known and emerging American and international artists in Hamilton, NJ
• organizing accessible exhibitions; and
• interpreting these exhibitions through publications, lectures, workshops and other educational programs.
In accordance with its mission, Grounds For Sculpture presents visitors with an evolving permanent outdoor collection, seasonal exhibitions, and educational programs designed to facilitate the understanding of and appreciation for contemporary sculpture.
