Theatre-lovers, this show is not to be missed!

“In Hänsel und Gretel, Engelbert Humperdinck masterfully combined simple folk-like melodies with Wagnerian techniques to create the world’s favourite fairy tale opera,” the description reads on Computicket.

“The darker psychological recesses of the original Brothers Grimm tale will be brought to the fore in CTO’s new production, designed by renowned artist-photographer Roger Ballen, and directed by Alessandro Talevi.”

“Here is what ROGER BALLEN, the man behind the set design of Hänsel und Gretel, has to say about inspiration,” the Opera House posted on Facebook.
