It’s creepy, crawly and so much fun it’s spooky! Your little ghost or goblin will help haunt the Long Center for the Performing Arts for the Austin Symphony Orchestra’s annual Halloween Children’s Concert. This exciting concert will have frightfully fun symphonic music that is stimulating for young eyes and ears (ages 2–10). This concert's main feature will be from the fairy tale opera Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck. Bernadette Nason will narrarate the story of Hansel and Gretel, a brother and sister abandoned in a forest, where they fall into the hands of a witch who lives in a house made of gingerbread, cake, and pastries. The witch intends to fatten the children before eventually eating them, but Gretel outwits the witch. The two children then escape with their lives and return home with the witch's treasure.
The entire family is invited to dress up in their favorite costume and enjoy “boo-tiful” music with their Austin Symphony Orchestra!
