Hansel and Gretel
A musical pantomime in three scenes by Engelbert Humperdinck

* abgespielt

When, instead of working at home in the kitchen, Hansel and Gretel run riot, singing “Suse, liebe Suse, was raschelt im Stroh?” and “Brüderchen, komm tanz mit mir” – and the sandman brings them sweet dreams from the land of fairytales – and the sweet, enticing smell of baking leads the way to the gingerbread house – and the wicked witch rides her broom – and Hansel is locked in the hutch – and the oven starts to smoke – but in the end the story comes to a happy ending… then young and old alike will once more fall under the magical spell of the old folk tale.

Pupils from the ORG (Barbara Palmetzhofer’s voice training class) and class 2 of the Vienna Boys’ Choir Primary School (Angelica Bösch; Alexander Jost) sing and perform this well-loved fairytale in a musical arrangement by Gerald Wirth, accompanied by piano and string ensemble.
