Step into a world of enchantment and adventure as Voxalis Opera brings The Brothers Grimm's timeless tale to life! Join us for a magical evening of music and mischief in our fully-staged production of Hansel and Gretel.

About this opera

In a humble, struggling household, the mischievous siblings, Hansel and Gretel, find themselves left to their own devices. Fueled by hunger and boredom, they decide to play games and procrastinate their chores. This angers their mother who inadvertently leads them deep into an enchanted forest. Here, they encounter the enchanting Sandman and the ethereal Dew Fairy, who guide them through the mystical woods. But their adventure takes a chilling twist when they stumble upon a deceptively delightful gingerbread house, inhabited by a terrifying child-eating Witch.


Will Hansel and Gretel outsmart this malevolent sorceress and escape with their lives, or will they become her next culinary victims? With enchanting melodies and a rich, suspenseful narrative, "Hansel and Gretel" is a mesmerizing opera that transports audiences into a world of magic, bravery, and the enduring power of hope. A sweet treat for all ages; whether a newcomer or a seasoned opera adventurer, don't miss this delectable musical masterpiece.
