The Brothers Grimm’s tale of hunger, enchantment, entrapment and rescue has thrilled children and adults for two hundred years. Many adaptations exist but Engelbert Humperdinck’s 1893 opera is by far the most delicious. Charming folksongs and sweeping orchestration cast a potent spell as the siblings Hansel and Gretel venture into the forest to forage for berries, encountering The Sandman, The Dew Fairy and The Gingerbread Witch on their adventure.

This production will be sung in German.

The Young Artists production of Hansel and Gretel will take place on 16 June.
