Win a pair of tickets to Hansel and Gretel at Manchester’s RNCM
Northern Soul has teamed up with the Royal Northern College of Music to offer five readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to RNCM Opera’s latest production, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel.
Based on the magical and somewhat dark Brothers’ Grimm tale, Hansel and Gretel is possibly the most operatic fairytale of them all. For this production, we turn the clock back to 1890s Manchester where a young brother and sister run away from their poor hunger-stricken home, to the lamp lit streets of the industrial city, with its possibilities but also its dangers.
Produced in collaboration with Grange Park Opera, Hansel and Gretel is directed by Stephen Medcalf (Glyndebourne, Royal Opera House, La Scala) and conducted by Anthony Kraus (fresh from his production of Opera North’s Madama Butterfly). It features talented students from the RNCM’s School of Vocal Studies and Opera, with set and costume design by Yannis Thavoris – who worked his magic on the College’s award-nominated December production of Massenet’s Cendrillon.
To be in with a chance of winning one of five pairs of tickets, all you have to do is sign up to the Northern Soul newsletter (details of how to do this are on the right-hand side of the page) and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title ‘Hansel and Gretel’.
Closing date: March 16, 2018
Winners will be picked at random and notified by: March 16, 2018
