Buy Tickets For Metropolitan Opera: Hansel & GretelBuy Tickets

A holiday treat in more ways than one! Join the Metropolitan Opera's Hansel and Gretel as they journey their way through a labyrinthine forest, full of giant chefs and trees wearing suits, to find the wicked witch.

Each act takes place in a kitchen to represent the children's growing hunger. Wittily staged by Richard Jones, with exceptional set design by John Macfarlane, this fantastically surreal production is an abundant feast for the eyes and ears.

Christine Schafer will perform the part Gretel and Christine Rice of Hansel. Andrew Davis conducts.
