Scottish Ballet’s Hansel & Gretel
10th December 2013 to 28th December 2013
Location: Theatre Royal Glasgow
Scottish Ballet is excited to unveil the world premiere of Christopher Hampson’s fantastical Hansel & Gretel, his first full length ballet for the Company, at the Theatre Royal Glasgow this December.
This tasty Christmas treat is a delightfully inventive brand new Hansel& Gretel and takes creative twists and turns inspired by the Grimm Brother’s famous fairy-tale and the stories and imagination of the people of Scotland.
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.

Choreography: Christopher Hampson
Music: Engelbert Humperdinck – The evocative score is performed live by the Scottish Ballet orchestra.
