British director Elijah Moshinsky brings the favorite childhood fairy tale, HANSEL AND GRETEL, into a sophisticated, adult arena with his updated staging. As performed by the Australian Opera and popular singer Englebert Humperdinck, the story of the boy and girl and the candy house is witty, irreverent, and moving.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Hansel and Gretel, based on the story by the Brothers Grimm, is an opera which successfully bridges the generation gap. Elijah Moshinsky's critically acclaimed, wittily updated English production for the Australian Opera is a truly theatrical blend of the once-upon-a-time and the here-and-now. Irreverent and refreshingly original, this production is an absolute delight with its rare blend of charm and style.
