A musical fairy tale in three scenes                                                                             by Engelbert Humperdinck

Children from the final year groups of the Vienna Boys’ Choir High School (Barbara Palmetzhofer’s vocal training class) and the Choir’s primary school Year 4 class (Angelica Bösch and Alexander Jost) perform this much-loved fairy tale, singing and acting to piano and string ensemble accompaniment in a musical arrangement by Gerald Wirth.

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” – then 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. And youngsters and adults alike once more fall under the magical spell of the old fairy tale.
