Hansel and Gretel

When their Mother sends Hansel and Gretel out of the house to look for food, the children quickly find themselves lost in the depths of a dark forest. Finally, almost starving, they find a house made of bread, cakes and sweets. No one's about; in their relief they begin to eat. However, the house is inhabited by a Witch, who hunts children to turn into gingerbread. She captures Hansel and Gretel, and begins to fatten them up, ready for the oven...

Production details

Opera North with Together We Can Eaz a Devised Opera Based o n Hansel and Gretel. In this his first opera production, theatre director Tim Supple, strips the drama to its brutal essentials: poverty, hunger, wild fantasy and ferocious terrors. By scaling down the opera and breaking down the lines between sung and spoken drama, the audience will be offered an intensely experience of Hansel and Gretel.
