Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, with its music alternating between full orchestral power and simple, folk-like melody, is a classic in the opera repertoire. The story of the two siblings who fall into the clutches of the "gingerbread witch" Rosina Leckermaul captivates audiences of all ages in this magical Marionette Theatre staging.
