About HÃ„NSEL UND GRETEL
With this modern version of the classic fairy tale, Glyndebourne is presenting Englebert Humperdinckâ€™s (1854-1921) HÃ¤nsel und Gretel for the first time in the 2008 Festival. The work has been a constant and extraordinary success since its premiere in 1893. Like all great fairy tales, the story has darker underpinnings, evident in Humperdinckâ€™s brilliant orchestral writing which accompanies the lost siblingsâ€™ journey through a shadowy world of unknown and limitless menace.
â€œLIVELY, CONFIDENDENT, COLURFUL!â€â€“Financial Times
“Adriana Kucerova’s irrepressibly hyperactive Gretel steals every scene. I don’t think I’ve seen an opera singer expend so much energy on stage. It’s as if she is connected directly to the national grid.â€ – Richard Morrison, Times Online
