“When Marcia and I first discussed Hansel & Gretel 2010, we had two goals in mind. The first was to create a production that furthered the artistic development of our dancers. The second was to present a familiar story that children and their families could enjoy together. Each time we present the production, it’s always an extraordinary pleasure to watch a new generation of dancers grow through these roles and delightful to see the audiences cheer its good-over-evil conclusion.”
