Hansel and Gretel

March 30 @ 7:30 pm - April 1 @ 9:00 pm

$8 - $12

This delightful fairy-tale opera, known in German as a Märchenoper, was originally devised as a dramatized family Christmas project. Adelheid Wette wrote a libretto based on the Grimm fairy tale “Hansel & Gretel” and convinced her brother, composer Engelbert Humperdinck, to set it to music. As this occurred during the 1890s, the composer wasn’t the famous 1960s British pop star, but a respected German Romantic composer born in 1854. Various revisions resulted in what composer and conductor Richard Strauss called an operatic “masterwork of the first rank.” A hit at its premiere on December 23, 1893 at Weimar, Humperdinck’s first and most popular opera is still widely performed today. The production will be a condensed version in English for youngsters of all ages.
