ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK

Hansel and Gretel

A deliciously festive holiday tradition, the Met’s English-language staging of Humperdinck’s sweeping interpretation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale returns, complete with giant cartoon chefs, singing trees, and a wicked witch’s kitchen you’ll never forget. Soprano Hera Hyesang Park and mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong headline as the siblings lost in the woods, and tenor John Daszak (in fright wig and fat suit) appears as their over-the-top nemesis, the Witch. Edward Gardner conducts.

 

The production was originally created for Welsh National Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago

Production a gift of the Gramma Fisher Foundation, Marshalltown, Iowa; and Karen and Kevin Kennedy

Additional funding from Dr. Coco Lazaroff, and Joan Taub Ades and Alan M. Ades
