Hansel And Gretel Tickets London

Antony McDonald's production of the classic fairytale Hansel And Gretel pays tribute to the enchanting fairytale narratives of the Brothers Grimm at the Royal Opera House from December 21st -29th 2018.  While it includes all of the story's darker aspects Humperdinck's catchy musical score also combines classic folksongs with orchestral interludes and a lyrical overture.

As their parents have fallen on hard times, one afternoon, Hansel and Gretel decide to dance to cheer themselves up. Their mother Gertrud becomes furious after discovering that they have neglected their work and sends them both into the forest to find strawberries for supper.  Little does she realize that the forest is a dangerous place to be after dark.

The children get lost in the forest. After a while, a tiny Sandman lulls them to sleep and when they awake in the morning after a night of wonderful dreams they find themselves next to a house made entirely of cake. Temptation gets the better of them as they can't resist a nibble… but the house's sinister owner catches them. What will become of them?
