As delightful as they are dark, fairy tales fire the imaginations of every generation. Composers have never been able to resist their appeal. Here the Hallé offers an enchanting afternoon which opens with the overture to Humperdinck’s ginger-bread opera, Hansel and Gretel
, and includes music from Ravel’s Mother Goose
Coming right up to date, there will be a premiere of a new piece based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Wild Swans
– written specially for the Hallé Children’s Choir, featuring young actors from Manchester Metropolitan University, as well as over 200 young singers from Greater Manchester.
This concert is recommended for children from primary school age.
We have been advised of some likely travel disruption on 29 June, including road closures, because of the Great Manchester Cycle.
We are advising everyone who is coming to the concert to allow plenty of time for your journey as there will be several diversions in place. While public transport is likely to be less affected, we would still advise that you allow extra time.
