Brought to London by the Open Air Theatre and the English National Opera, Hansel and Gretel will be performed at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in June 2019. Based on the fairy tale of the same name by the Grimms Brothers, see the enchanting tale of Hansel and Gretel come to life, as they try to free themselves from an evil spell cast upon them by an evil witch. Often associated with Christmas, see this German opera in the summer time as the story is given a modern twist for contemporary audiences.

Mother is played by Rosie Aldridge and Gweneth Ann Rand, and Father by Duncan Rock and Ben McAteer. Alasdair Elliott and John Findon share the role of the Witch. Gillian Keith takes the role of the Sandman at all performances, with He Wu as the Dew Fairy.

Set in Germany, Hansel and Gretel live a poor, yet ordinary life. When a large famine sweeps the area, their mother decides to take them into the woods and leave them there to fend for themselves, as the parents are unable to. While in the woods, they stumble across an evil Gingerbread Witch, who attracts children by giving them an unlimited supply of cake and sweets. Lured by the witch, the children enter the witch’s house. Later planning to eat the children, the witch casts a spell to stop them moving. Inside an oven, the children have to save themselves and others from facing the same destiny.
