Hansel & Gretel
a magical music theatre show for the whole family
Toneelmakerij and Silbersee present Hansel & Gretel.
This time Hansel and Gretel aren’t lost in a forest – they’re roaming the deserted streets of the big city at night, because their parents have thrown them out. Along the way they meet all sorts of remarkable characters – like the ChipLovingPigeon who also loves to share his opinions about the city, the NightOwl with his promises of a fantastic night out, and the out-of-tune BarrelOrganMan. Will Hansel and Gretel ever go back to their parents, or are they going to fend for themselves?
A bittersweet blend of opera, drama, singing, hip-hop and dance make this sometimes grim Grimm’s fairy tale an unforgettable experience for the whole family – it’s an exciting, funny and moving coming-of-age tale with surprising video footage of your own home town.
