Hansel and Gretel - Irish National Opera

From: 16 May 2019
To: 16 May 2019
One of the sweetest yet most lushly captivating scores in the entire operatic repertory and one of the greatest operas about children - Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is full of music that is sweet and beguiling, and it combines childlike simplicity with heart aching beauty.

This is a story of greed and starvation, mouth-wateringly sugar-coated.
