One of the greatest operas about children, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is sweet and beguiling, combining childlike simplicity with heart-aching beauty.

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.

One of the greatest operas about children, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is sweet and beguiling, combining childlike simplicity with heart-aching beauty.

Irish National Opera, Theatre Lovett and the Abbey Theatre collaborate on this compelling new three-act opera, reimagined in a mysterious modern setting.

Don’t be fooled. This is a story of greed and starvation, mouth-wateringly sugar-coated.

Sung in English with English surtitles.
