Ralph Opera Center: Hansel & Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck

Based on the fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm, the opera tells the familiar tale of two children who happen upon a mysterious Gingerbread house in the woods, and are captured by a Witch who wants to eat them. Written early in the composer’s life, Humperdinck’s sister asked if he would set parts of a children’s play about Hansel and Gretel to music, and eventually the full opera. The composer succeeded in telling the simple fairy tale in a musical treatment of remarkable sophistication with captivating melodies and folk-like appeal. A beautiful version of the familiar fairy tale, this production is a wonderful first time opera experience, especially for families with little ones.
