Hansel and Gretel

Subscribe Now

Returning for the holidays, this season’s family entertainment is Richard Jones’s witty production of Humperdinck’s fairy tale opera, conducted by Andrew Davis, in which two children face off against a wicked witch. In a lush setting of giant chefs, suit-clad trees, and an industrial kitchen where the Witch gets what’s coming to her, Christine Schäfer as Gretel and Christine Rice as Hansel will lead a visual and delightful feast for our younger patrons.

Originally created for Welsh National Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago
