A fairy tale opera in three acts. Sung in English with English surtitles

In 1891, Engelbert Humperdinck’s sister Adelheid Wette asked him to write some music to go with a story she had written as a Christmas gift for her children, based on the Grimm brothers’ popular fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel.” What started as a few musical sketches quickly grew into a full-scale opera, becoming a Christmas gift for generations – one that is still beloved today, by children and adults alike!
