When: Feb. 29-March 3 2012
The CIM Opera Theater is having a fairy tale season. Following a successful staging of Massenet's Cendrillon (Cinderella) in the fall, artistic director David Bamberger decided to keep the magic going with Englebert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel . The CIM Orchestra, conducted by Harry Davidson, will accompany the Opera Theater. Sung in its original German, the production features projected translations. Inspired by the tale of Hansel & Gretel and their family's struggle with hunger in tough times, a battle faced by 1 in 6 Americans today, CIM will participate in the 2012 Harvest for Hunger campaign to benefit the Cleveland Foodbank. We invite you to join in by bringing a non-perishable item to CIM on any of the performance days to help those in need in our community. Most needed items include peanut butter, tuna fish, canned vegetables, canned soup, cereal and beef stew.
