Marc Albrecht conducts Humperdinck’s much loved opera, in a new production by the young Dutch director Lotte de Beer. In this contemporary adaptation the story is set, not in a forest with a gingerbread house, but on a Brazilian rubbish tip! Peter is joined by Kate Lindsey and Lenneke Ruiten as Hänsel and Gretel respectively, with Thomas Olimans as Peter and Charlotte Margiono as Gertrud. The production opens on December 3rd with performances to December 29.
Peter’s next appearance will be as Zinovy in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk at the Opéra de Lyon, before returning to London to sing Normanno in Katie Mitchell’s new production of Lucia di Lammermoor for Covent Garden.
