The huge success of the 2017 Pop-Up Opera Tour of Hansel and Gretel has brought this German fairy tale back for another year, premiering in Bermondsey on the 1st of February. This family friendly production is a gripping take on the world-renowned, Grimm Brother’s story.

The play follows siblings Hansel and Gretel as they journey through the enchanted forest, encountering the Sandman, the Due Fairy and the Witch and her gingerbread house on the way. The story is carried by dark and beautifully atmospheric music. Sung in its traditional German language (with English captions), it keeps its medieval German roots in the midst of its modern British rendition of the fairy tale.
One of the most exciting things about the performance is the ingenuity of the set – there is the theatrical challenge of how to create an enchanted forest, build a gingerbread house or burn a witch with limited props… Mops become trees, and strips of cardboard become songbirds!
Hansel and Gretel is a truly unique and thrilling production you will not want to miss. Tickets are just £20 and under 12’s tickets are £12.50 – book yours here!
