LA Opera Hansel and Gretel

An enchanting classic filled with holiday magic!

The beloved fairy tale comes to the operatic stage with 12-foot-tall creatures, fantastical sets and elaborate special effects. This entrancing, dreamlike production of Engelbert Humperdinck's classic opera will transport you to a magical world of wonder and surprise. Diva extraordinaire Susan Graham stars as the uproariously wicked witch, eager to lure her young victims into a delicious trap, but last-minute ingenuity saves the day and the plucky children emerge triumphant in the heartfelt conclusion.

"A delectable holiday treat… Fitch’s visionary approach was a delight." – Opera News
