Hänsel und Gretel

Hänsel und Gretel

(Hänsel und Gretel), Richard Jones / USA, 2008
English version, English and Czech subtitles, 135 min

Most fairy tales, though charming on the outside, have darker underpinnings. Alice Coote and Christine Schäfer play the siblings lost in a shadowy world of unknown menace, pursued by the Witch (portrayed by tenor Philip Langridge) who seeks to devour them. The English-language production of Engelbert Humperdinck’s masterful treatment of the beloved story by the Brothers Grimm is the second in the Met’s annual series of special holiday presentations.

The screening is encore screening of the recorded show.
