Met Opera: Hansel and Gretel

Most fairy tales, though charming on the outside, have darker underpinnings. Alice Coote and Christine Schafer play the siblings lost in a shadowy world of unknown menace, pursued by the witch (portrayed by tenor Philip Langridge) who seeks to devour them. This English language production of Engelbert Humperdinck's masterful treatment is based on the beloved story by the Brothers Grimm.
