Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all.
Brother and sister Hansel & Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch. In the dizzying excitement of the Witch’s Ride and the serene beauty of the children’s evening prayer, Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story.
A story that will enchant and thrill, a wintry delight.
"FIVE stars for an opera with no orchestra, very little design and no big stars itself? Yes; five stars"
