A children’s fable or full-blown horror story?
Share the journey of Hansel and Gretel as they leave the warmth of home and enter the alluring dark forest where freedom soon turns to fear as the pair become hopelessly lost. A tasty gingerbread house appears and witches’ trickery follows in this cautionary tale about stranger danger.
Creating the forest in Supreme Court Gardens is media artist Sohan Ariel Hayes (Boorna Waanginy and HOME) who will transform the park using projection, light and image to make this a truly immersive experience.
Enjoy the sumptuous, romantic music by 19th century master Humperdinck, and discover in this glorious opera why Hansel and Gretel is one of the most beloved tales from the pens of the Brothers Grimm. Sung by an extraordinary West Australian cast with the full might of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Chris van Tuinen, this promises to be a delight for the ears and eyes alike.
