It’s that time of year for seasonal favorites.  The Opera Workshop of the Binghamton University Music Department presents Engelbert Humperdinck’s ‘Hansel and Gretel’ in two performances on Sunday, December 8. Opera Workshop coordinator Thomas Goodheart and conductor Noby Ishida join us to talk about what makes this opera such a family favorite, and also about what makes the world of opera such a small world.
