Katie Bray and Fflur Wyn have received fantastic reviews for their respective performances as Hansel and Gretel for Opera North in a new production by Edward Dick. Click here to watch the audience reaction trailer.
‘Katie Bray’s Hansel and Fflur Wyn’s Gretel sing with a light, spontaneous ease that overcomes the disconnect of a pair of pre-teens expressing themselves with mature, adult voices. The famous duet in which they sing themselves to sleep is breathtaking.’ – Alfred Hickling, The Guardian
‘Katie Bray and Fflur Wyn could scarcely be bettered as the eponymous brats.’ – Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph
‘Fflur Wyn‘s sparkling performance as Gretel makes her an ideal loving sibling.’ – Richard Wilcocks, bachtrack.com
‘Katie Bray and Fflur Wyn sing beautifully and make convincing children’
– Anthony Arblaster, The Independent
‘Katie Bray as Hansel is ideal in all respects, having clearly studied how young boys move and what expressions they adopt. She has a lovely voice, too, and the opening scene for the two is ravishing musically.’ – Michael Tanner, The Spectator
Performances of Hansel and Gretel run until the 25th March. For more information and to book tickets click here.
