Once upon a time - sol si do fa! - two very cheerful singers who wanted to tell the story of Hansel and Gretel in music. Their very clever friend tries to give them a hand, but with his greed and his distraction, he always has his feet in the dishes ... especially in the candy dish! How do you get your attention? Perhaps by entrusting it with an important role in history ... This funny and fantasy concert revisits a tale well known by lovers of delicacies. What better way to discover one of the most complete arts there is: opera.
