Hansel Gretel Hansel Gretel

November 17 – December 15, 2018

An original LA Opera production

At the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

The spooky adventures of Hansel and Gretel comes to the operatic stage with 12-foot-tall creatures, fantastical sets and elaborate special effects.

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. James Conlon conducts Engelbert Humperdinck's sumptuous music, written in the Wagnerian mode, that was championed by Strauss and Mahler.

"A fantasy world audiences will be happy to join."
