The director of the +PlusOpera Vienna Sylvia, Saavedra-Edelmann, completed the team of her opera studio with renowned stage director Leonard Prinsloo and David Holzinger in order to stage the performance of “Hansel and Gretel” by Engelbert Humperdinck in a chamber version, realized on the piano by the pianists Mariam Bombrun and Uliana Cheklina on November 9, 2020. The studio offers young talents and voice students a platform to grow their on- and off-stage experience in opera performance. However, due to the Covid-19 restrictions it was not possible to perform at the Off-Theater Wien publicly. But the efforts should not have been in vain. Filmdirector Flo Convey and his team recorded the “ghost-performance”.
The Otto Edelmann Society is now providing the link to the video recording and asks for a small contribution, in order to support the opera studio throughout these difficult times and offer music and culture to its audience.
