Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel August 18, 19, 25, 26 Once upon a time, two children found themselves lost in a dark forest, until they happened upon a house made entirely of sweets. What happens next…well, that's the story of Hänsel und Gretel complete with a cackling witch, enchanted fairies, and a gingerbread house. 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 and the perils of growing up! Hänsel und Gretel will be performed in German with English supertitles.
