This workshop is the fourth in a series of four musical creation workshops in a virtual format that prepare audiences for the concert Opera Candy: The Gourmet Adventure of Hansel and Gretel.

Sing the Hansel and Gretel song! Opera singers, like athletes, have to train a lot. In this final workshop you’ll be able to sing along with a real opera singer!

Discover the rich world of opera through Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel! Immerse yourself in a world of vocal experiences: make vocalizations, explore registers and find your own range. You can even learn a tune and choreography so that you can sing and dance like Hansel and Gretel. Once the impressive job of the opera singer has been demystified, you will see that there is no hocus pocus involved!

Duration of each workshop: Approximately 30 minutes, series of four workshops over a four-week period

Presented in association with Jeunesses Musicales Canada

Approximately 30 minutes long
