Join Eugene Opera in the woods for this cherished tale from the Brothers Grimm. Will the magic of the woods protect Hansel and Gretel after they are cast out of their home? Will they survive their encounter with the Witch, or succumb to her tempting treats?
Humperdinck's evocative score, adapted for chamber orchestra, features operatic favorites including the "Evening Prayer" and the "Witch's Ride" and tells this beloved story with compassion and charm. A perfect introduction to opera for all ages.
