Unwrap a tasty new Christmas treat with the world premiere of Christopher Hampson’s fantastical Hansel & Gretel at Glasgow’s Theatre Royal!
This New Year, Glasgow’s Theatre Royal plays host to the world premiere of Christopher Hampson’s fantastical Hansel & Gretel. On from the 5th until the 14th of January 2016.
In a small town, all the children have disappeared. Plucky Hansel and Gretel embark on an exciting adventure venturing deep into the enchanted forest to find their friends. This delightfully inventive brand new Hansel & Gretel takes creative twists and turns inspired by the Grimm Brother’s famous fairy tale – and the stories and imagination of the people of Scotland. A carousel of delicious treats from start to finish, Hansel & Gretel is full to the brim with magic and wit; with toys that come to life and a beautiful bewitching ballerina who is not at all as she seems.
Scrumptiously surreal and with more than a sprinkle of festive magic – take an enchanting journey with Scotland’s national dance company this winter.
Humperdinck’s evocative score is performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
