Hansel & Gretel

Engelbert Humperdinck, Adelheid Wette


Kansas State University
McCain Auditorium, Spring 2015
In this classic opera based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale, Hansel and Gretel disobey their parents by ignoring their daily chores and playing all day. When their mother returns, she sends them into the woods, warning them not to return until they have filled their baskets with strawberries. The children get lost. Scared and lonely, they wander the woods until they come across a beautiful house decorated with candies and gingerbread and meet the woman who lives within
