Why See Canadian Opera Company - Hansel and Gretel?
Hold hands and stick together
Join the Canadian Opera Company for this delicious family-friendly treat, coming to you as part of the 2019/20 season. Engelbert Humperdinck's (the composer not the crooner) irresistible opera is a feast for the eyes and ears as it follows the fortunes of two young children who find themselves lost in a mysterious and magical forest, before discovering a strange house - made of mouth-watering gingerbread!
What is the story?
Based on 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 the conductor, it has become a classic confection for all ages to enjoy.
After being sent into the haunted forest by their mother to pick strawberries, the young Hansel and Gretel fall prey to its biggest terror. Captivated by an unexpected house made of candy and gingerbread, the hungry children soon start nibbling, only to realize 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.

The characters are each flawed and foolish, hopeful and determined. All of them are given moments of ignorance and moments of revelation.
