"While Portland Opera has switched to a mostly summer season, other institutions have stepped up to feed the city’s operatic addiction. The Oregon Symphony performs German Romantic composer Engelbert Humperdinck’s popular 1893 adaptation of the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale with help from Pacific Youth Choir, a quintet of vocal soloists, and most distinctively, dazzling shadow puppetry concocted by Chicago-based Manual Cinema." - Oregon Arts Watch
The Chicago-based Manual Cinema lights Humperdinck’s fairy-tale opera, set in the depths of the thick German forest, with the dazzling, phantasmic effects of shadow puppetry.
