Music by Engelbert Humperdinck Libretto by Adelheid Wette

Lost in the forest and tricked by a house made of sweets, the brother-sister team of Hansel and Gretel must use their brains and their bravery to outwit the witch who pursues them. This enchanting fairy tale opera—itself created by the Brothers Grimm and siblings Engelbert Humperdinck and Adelheid Wette—provides a family-friendly adventure filled with visual and musical wonders.

Sung in English
