Engelbert Humperdinck

Hänsel und Gretel

Titular heroes, striving to forget about hunger, begin to dance. At this moment the mother returns home and seeing children playing, she flies into a rage because they have left their work. Executing punishment she accidentally smashes a jug with remaining milk. In helplessness, she sends the children to the forest for blueberries. And in the forest lives the nefarious witch…Hopefully in Humperdinck the children remain under the wing of good spirits – Sand’s Spirit and Angels, always accompanied by fantastic music. Fabulous opera provides a confidence that even captivity in a gingerbread witch’s house will come off well.
