Popup Opera: Hänsel und Gretel

  • Opera on the 11th March at
  • Asylum

Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all. Our 5* Opera is back by popular demand for a short time only.

Brother and sister Hänsel & 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. A story that will enchant and thrill, a wintry delight.

Sunday 11th March / 5pm
