Humperdinck's fairy tale opera was presented in a fully staged production complete with principal cast, ballet, children’s chorus and 28-piece orchestra.  Worlds collide as this classic tale had a humorous modern revamp.

Humperdinck’s luscious score was brought to life by conductor Christopher Dragon, Assistant Conductor of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra and one of Australia’s most exciting young conductors. The principal roles were sung by some of Perth’s finest singers, and the performance featured our own 28-piece orchestra alongside our first ever ballet and children’s chorus.
