"Not seen at Seattle Opera for 23 years, Humperdinck's impressive adaptation of the iconic Grimm story has been an international favorite since its premiere. With refreshing humor and Wagnerian orchestration, this atmospheric fable explores universal themes of poverty, peril, and bravery, culminating in happiness for all – save for one very bad witch!"
The opera will be sung in German with English subtitles at McCaw Hall in Seattle. More information about the opera can be found at the Seattle Opera website at http://www.seattleopera.org/on-stage/hansel-and-gretel/
