The operatic adaptation of the fairy tale, originally written by Englebert Humperdink, is directed by ENMU faculty members Jean Wozencraft-Ornellas and Kimberly Gelbwasser, and will feature actors from the school’s Stagecraft for Singers class, as well as local children’s choir singers.

While the original fairy tale tells the story of a brother and sister threatened by a cannibalistic witch, Ornelias promised this tale will be family oriented without any blood, gore or amputations.
