One for all the family

Make room for this delicious production of Engelbert Humperdinck's (the composer not the crooner) Hansel and Gretel. A marvelous confection of fairytale creatures, enchanting sets and spellbinding special effects set to Humperdinck's effervescent score, this whole-family event is just the right kind of festive treat.

Based on the the cautionary fable from The Brother's Grimm, Hansel and Gretel was a collaboration between Humperdinck and his sister Adelheid, expanding on a series of songs that Adelheid had written for her children for Christmas. First premiering in 1893 with Richard Strauss as conductor, it has become a firm favorite over the holiday season.

After being send into the haunted forest by their mother to pick strawberries, the young Hansel and Gretel fall prey to its biggest terror. Captivated by a strange house made of candy and gingerbread the hungry children soon start nibbling, only to realise that this is the house of the wicked Witch, who loves to cook children and eat them. Will they outsmart her and escape the woods? Find out in this folk-inspired sugary hit!
