A world of magic, fireflies, and fairies comes to life through Humperdinck’s lush and majestic music, which has something for every listener – from the beautiful ‘Evening Prayer’ to enchanting folk-inspired melodies. Our cast, children’s chorus and The Orchestra of Scottish Opera come together on stage to tell the story of Hansel and Gretel’s grand adventure deep in the enchanted forest where not everything is as it seems. The young pair will need every ounce of courage, cleverness, and hope if they're to escape the lure of the Witch and her gingerbread hut.
Conducted by Stuart Stratford and with staging by former Scottish Opera staff director Roxana Haines (Rubble 2022 and Così fan tutte 2021), with a cast of current and former Scottish Opera Emerging Artists and Associate Artists. Lea Shaw (Carmen 2023) and Catriona Hewitson (Daphne 2023) lead as Hansel and Gretel, with Heather Ireson (Il trittico 2023) in the dual role of the Mother and the Witch. Ross Cumming and Inna Husieva (both seen in this year’s Daphne) round out the cast as the Father and the Dew Fairy/the Sandman respectively.
