Follow Hansel and Gretel through the woods as they encounter magical beings both friend and foe. Will they outsmart the Gingerbread Witch?
Celebrate the holiday season with Shakespeare Opera Theatre’s lighthearted presentation of this classic story. Adapted from the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale by siblings Engelbert Humperdinck (composer) and Adelheid Wette (librettist) for the operatic stage, this siblings-lost-in-the-woods show is a true family affair! This 19th century opera is admired for its folk music-inspired themes and compelling characters, making it the perfect introduction to opera for all ages.

Running time approximately one hour and thirty minutes, including one intermission. Presented in English translation. House opens for food and atmosphere 45 minutes before showtime.
