Presented by Cape Town Opera – In Hänsel und Gretel, Engelbert Humperdinck masterfully combined simple folk-like melodies with Wagnerian techniques to create the world’s favourite fairy tale opera. The darker psychological recesses of the original Brothers Grimm tale will be brought to the fore in Cape Town Opera’s new production, designed by renowned artist-photographer Roger Ballen, and directed by Alessandro Talevi.

Adjustments made to Alert level 1 allows for indoor gatherings to be increased from 100 to 250 persons.  Artscape is delighted that additional tickets are now available for the upcoming production of Hansel and Gretel at Artscape.
