Hansel and Gretel
Opera Holland Park
23 June from 7:30pm
The Brothers Grimm’s tale of hunger, enchantment, entrapment and rescue has thrilled children and adults for two hundred years. Many adaptations exist but Engelbert Humperdinck’s 1893 opera is by far the most delicious.
Charming folksongs and sweeping orchestration cast a potent spell as siblings Hansel and Gretel venture into the forest to forage for berries, encountering The Sandman, The Dew Fairy and The Gingerbread Witch on their adventure.
An extraordinary three-month summer festival.
Surrounded by the beautiful formal gardens and wilded woodlands of Holland Park, our canopied open-air auditorium is the perfect place to enjoy critically acclaimed opera in the heart of London.
