Following last season's production of The Turn of the Screw, we continue our collaboration with English National Opera, with Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel.
In the unique environment of Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, experience the Grimm Brothers' fairytale anew in this operatic retelling, sung in English.
Ben Glassberg conducts members of the ENO Orchestra, with direction by Open Air Theatre Artistic director Timothy Sheader.

Guidelines for Parents and Teachers
Hansel and Gretel
Whilst suitable for family audiences, as a sung-through opera Hansel and Gretel is most likely to be of interest to those aged 9 and over. The production is sung in English, and further information and synopsis can be found by searching online for ‘Hansel and Gretel Humperdinck’.
It remains the responsibility of the parent/guardian in advance of purchase to make their own judgement as to the suitability of the show for their own child.
