Once upon a time, two children found themselves lost in a dark forest, until they happened upon a house made entirely of sweets. What happens next … well, that’s the story of Hansel and Gretel complete with a cackling witch, enchanted fairies, and a gingerbread house. In the dizzying excitement of “The Witch’s Ride” and the serene beauty of the children’s “Evening Prayer,” Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story and the perils of growing up! Bring the kids to enjoy this classic fairytale for FREE!
