About Hansel and Gretel

Mildura - 9 October
Bendigo - 13 October
Sale - 27 October (Schools performances only)

An irresistible musical treat!

Nibble, nibble, munch; a gingerbread house with plenty of crunch. Chocolates and treats to tempt every desire, but will the consequences of enjoying them truly be dire?

Experience the wonder and excitement of Engelbert Humperdinck's opera of the everlasting Grimm fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, though beware entering the woods where the Evil One lurks…

Staged with enchanting set and costumes, Victorian Opera brings this treasured story from the page to the stage in a beloved operatic rendition. This 50 minute production will be sung in its original German language with English scene descriptors, and will feature beautiful singing and live orchestral music.

Hansel and Gretel is ideal for primary students and aligns perfectly with curriculum priorities: drama, theatre, music, languages, creativity, English and storytelling. This production is supported by education resources and free pre-show incursion workshops.

Hansel and Gretel is a magical opera and the work of a master composer. A delectable story of good and evil, darkness and light, that will capture the imaginations of the young and young at heart.

– Richard Mills, Victorian Opera Artistic Director

Running time is 50 minutes with no interval.

Sung in its original German language with English scene descriptors.

Victorian Opera is also performing Heroes and Villains as part of its 2017 Regional Tour.
