Scottish Ballet: Hansel & Gretel

Scottish Ballet: Hansel & Gretel

Empire Theatre

Choreography: Christopher Hampson
Music: Engelbert Humperdinck, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra

A small town, all the children have disappeared...
 
Join Hansel and Gretel as they embark on an exciting journey deep into the enchanted forest to find their missing friends in this, the world premiere of Christopher Hampson’s delightfully inventive production, inspired by the Grimm Brother’s famous fairy tale, and the stories and imagination of the people of Scotland. Over the past year participants of all ages, through creative writing and visual art competitions, have helped shape this new production of Hansel & Gretel.
 
A carousel of delicious treats from start to finish, this sumptuous production is bursting with magic and wit, toys that come to life and a beautiful bewitching ballerina who is not at all that she seems...
