Humperdinck - Hansel and Gretel


One of the greatest operas about children, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is full of music that is sweet and beguiling.

An Irish National Opera / Theatre Lovett / Abbey Theatre co-production.

One of the greatest operas about children. Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is full of music that is sweet and beguiling, combining childlike simplicity with heart aching beauty. He wanted a plot that ‘was not made up of murders, brutal deaths, operetta-like nonsense, or sugar-sweet fairy tales’. Do not be fooled. This is a story of greed and starvation, mouth-wateringly sugar-coated.

Trouble at home. Two hungry children lost in a haunted forest. The lure of a gingerbread house. The frightening hocus pocus of the predatory Witch. And the smarts of the children who triumph in the end. All wrapped up in the delicious sound world of Engelbert Humperdinck’s operatic masterpiece.

Sung in English with English surtitles
