Humperdinck’s ‘Hansel and Gretel’

  • Performance on the 5th of November at
  • Asylum

Pop-up Opera return with one of the most popular operatic fairy tales of all – the enchanting Hansel and Gretel.
Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all. Brother and sister Hansel & Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch. 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.

Sung in German with English captions, this story will enchant and thrill – a wintry delight.—peckham-london/
