Host Alexa Petrenko’s “Sunday Night at the Opera” this weekend features opera music of course, and this week, a chat with Joel Ivany. Here’s what Alexa has to say about this week’s show, airing September 15th:
“Something for your inner child this week, now that the ‘outer children’ are back at school: Engelbert Humperdinck’s children’s opera Hansel and Gretel, based on the fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm. Is it really a story for children? Joel Ivany, founder and artistic director of Against the Grain Theatre, who will direct the Canadian Opera Company’s winter production, joins me to raise some new questions and shed some new light on this old, old story.”
Sunday Night at the Opera, with host Alexa Petrenko, airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
