We were fortunate to receive funding from Arts Council England, D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, the Belinda Starling Memorial Fund, Hervey Benham Charitable Trust and the Essex Music Services Hub as well as sponsorship from Birkett Long and generous donations from The Friends of the Pimlott Foundation, to produce Humperdinck’s opera ‘Hansel and Gretel’ at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester back in February 2015.

We were also incredibly fortunate to welcome Rosalind Plowright OBE as the patron for Hansel and Gretel. Rosalind performed the part of Mother in Hansel and Gretel at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
