About HÄNSEL UND GRETEL
With this modern version of the classic fairy tale, Glyndebourne is presenting Englebert Humperdinck’s (1854-1921) Hänsel 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 Humperdinck’s brilliant orchestral writing which accompanies the lost siblings’ journey through a shadowy world of unknown and limitless menace.
“LIVELY, CONFIDENDENT, COLURFUL!”–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.” – Richard Morrison, Times Online
