Humperdinck | Hänsel und Gretel

Sung in German with English supertitles

The best-loved operatic fairy tale of them all, from internationally renowned opera conductor Sir Andrew Davis and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

Siblings Hänsel and Gretel flee the grinding hunger and poverty of their home, escaping to the idyllic freedom of the forest – only to discover it’s a place of darkness and danger, and of terrifying supernatural forces.

Humperdinck’s sweeping score blends Wagnerian opulence with dazzling energy and excitement, in an opera with profound resonances for children and grown-ups alike.

Among the fine international cast are rich-toned mezzo soprano Elizabeth DeShong and sparkling soprano Laura Wilde in the touching title roles.
