Hansel and Gretel a children's opera

Director Nathaniel Merrill and designer Robert O'Hearn work operatic magic in this brilliant production of Humperdinck's cherished favorite. What Christmas is complete without this sumptuous musical retelling of the classic fairy tale, replete with guardian angels, a sandman, dew fairy, and, of course, a witch and her enticing gingerbread house. This performance, sung in English, features Frederica von Stade as the loveable but mischievous Hansel and Judith Blegen as his charming sister Gretel. Rosalind Elias is the evil Witch.

  • "L'opéra est basé sur le conte de Grimm. Deux enfants s'éloignent de leur maison pour cueillir des fraises dans le bois. La nuit les surprend, ils s'endorment et ils sont attirés le lendemain par une sorcière qui habite un château tout en sucrerie. La sorcière veut s'emparer d'eux pour les mettre au four d'où ils sortiraient en pains d'épice. Mais, après un certain nombre de péripéties, les enfants parviennent à mettre la sorcière au four. Leurs parents arrivent après une longue recherche. Le four éclate. La sorcière en sort transformée en pain d'épice. Les enfants précédemment enlevés et transformés par la sorcière retrouvent leur aspect primitif et dansent joyeusement avec Hänsel et Gretel. L'oeuvre est, dans l'ensemble gracieuse et séduisante."
  • "This deliciously dark take on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tale, appealing to audiences of all ages, was part of the Met's popular English-language holiday series. Alice Coote and Christine Schäfer star as the famous siblings lost in the woods, who battle the ravenous Witch--a zany portrayal by tenor Philip Langridge--while the Met orchestra, under the baton of Vladimir Jurowski, glories in the rich, folk-inspired score."@en

  • "Videocassette release of a 1981 production by Unitel."
  • "A surreal and irreverent interpretation of the story of Hansel and Gretel."

  • "Humperdinck's charming opera based on the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. The story features a gingerbread house, a wicked old witch, and a young brother and sister who get lost in the woods and trapped by the witch. With a little help from on High and their own pluck and courage they manage to save themselves as well as all the children who were previously victims of the witch."
  • "Opname van een opvoering in de Opera van Zürich in 1999."
  • "Classic tale of the brother and sister who are lost in the woods and discover a gingerbread-and-candy cottage. An apparently kindly old woman lives in the cottage, and the children find that she is really an evil witch, with a nasty appetite!"@en
  • "This is a performance of Englebert Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel, performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) conducted by Kazushi Ono."
  • ""Johannes Felsenstein portrays abject poverty in moving images and depicts the strength of imagination with which Hansel and Gretel dream of a colourful world in which their mother and father lovingly care for them. The Christmas Eve scene with the witch game is reality for them, but remains an utopian dream. Despite the uniqueness of this interpretation of the story, it is both logical and consistent and makes it a piece of realist music theatre not just for children"--Container."
