Kids Commute - Hansel and Gretel Encore!

Dec 18, 2020

Hansel and Gretel Week!

Hey Kids Commuters! We're in our last full week before holiday break, so we're listening to an opera - for kids - for the holidays!

Composer Engelbert Humperdinck teamed up with his sister to put together a version of "Hansel and Gretel" for their family. It went so well they expanded it into a whole opera! We'll listen to the opera this week - in English!

We have a fairy tale themed Quizlet for you, too.

Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m., or listen any time at the links below.

Kids Commute returns to Classical IPR on Janurary 11, 2021. Have a delightful holiday break!

Don't forget to tune in to Classical IPR on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. for the Met Opera Broadcast of "Hansel and Gretel" - in English!


This week's MAYA MIX is the whole kit and kaboodle - the "Hansel and Gretel" recording we've been listening to all week! It's wonderfully done. Enjoy!
