JasonDetwiler    MicheleDetwiler
Jason Detwiler as Peter, the father and Michele Detwiler as Gertrude, the mother

Victoria Arriero as the Sandman/Dew Fairy
Local favorites Michele and Jason Detwiler, husband and wife in real life, portray the same as parents of Hansel and Gretel.  Amanda Gardner-Porter makes the transition from mezzo-soprano in her debut as a soprano in her role as Gretel.  Melina Pyron from Missoula, MT makes her Opera Idaho debut as Hansel, as does local soprano Victoria Arriero as the Sandman/Dew Fairy.  And Suzanne Hansen takes the role everyone comes to see - the Witch (who eats children, of course!)  ​Sean Rogers is the Music Director, and the opera features Opera Idaho's own Children's Choruses.

Hansel and Gretel is a delightful, family oriented production for children of all ages (even children at heart). Invite your friends and family to experience this wonderful opera. Click here for more information.
