Description

New production

Leading composer-conductors like Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss were enthusiastic advocates of productions of Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera Hansel and Gretel – Strauss even conducted the premiere in Weimar in 1893. Small wonder, for the work contains music that delights both children and adults, and is one of the quintessential creations of musical theatre. And this is also why Hansel and Gretel has a long performance tradition at the Wiener Staatsoper. Humperdinck masterfully combined Richard Wagner’s influences with the early romantic opera tradition and elements of folk music.

More information is available on the opera house's official website.
