We just posted a new album of photos from the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre's production of Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, which continues this weekend at the Lexington Opera House. The fun thing about this album is, since there are two casts, if you only saw one, this gives you a chance to see what the other crew looked like. You may note that this album is labeled "UK Opera," and we'll try to build it backwards and forwards, picking up some classic shots from productions past and adding ones from future shows. We'll also be looking to launch photo albums on other area groups here at le blog.
The photo, above, is of Amanda Balltrip, who is playing Gretel in the "Hansel Cast" of H&G. Herald-Leader photographer Mark Cornelison shot her in Brown's Bakery on Leestown Road.
