Hänsel und Gretel

Now available on DVD with its familiar fairy-tale story, feel-good ending and magical mix of simple folk tunes and rich Wagnerian textures, Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel has long cast its musical spell over both adults and children alike. Laurent Pelly’s deliciously witty 2008 production with an underlying subtext of modern consumerism, sees the broom-maker’s two outcast children lose their way in the enchanted forest before finding themselves in every hungry child’s dream.
