Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Performs Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel In Cori Ellison's English Singing Translation

Dec. 17, 2021

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, led by Sir Donald Runnicles, performed Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel in concert on December 5 and 8 at Atlanta Symphony Hall, using Cori Ellison's excellent, contemporary English singing translation. The cast included Kelley O'Connor as Gretel and Jacquelyn Stucker as Hansel. Elizabeth Bishop sings the Witch, Stephen Powell, the Father, Melody Moore, the Mother, and Meechot Marrero as Sandman/Dew Fairy.

Engelbert Humperdinck's delightful and family-friendly opera Hansel and Gretel, based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale, is a perennial favorite, enjoyed by audiences both young and old throughout the world. Cori Ellison's spirited English singing translation of the opera offers companies a fresh take on this classic work.

Ellison's singing translation was published by Schott Music shortly after being commissioned and premiered by the New York City Opera. Since its premiere, it has been performed by numerous opera companies.
