The spooky adventures of Hansel and Gretel come 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.
