Spellbound

'In the spring, we are "Spellbound" by the magic of Mozart and The Magic Flute, and the wonderful luscious chocolate cake that is Humperdink’s score for Hansel & Gretel. We also create a new version of Chorus! – the performance in which our justly famous chorus takes centre stage. The conflict between the mass and the individual is the theme, and the brave woman who confronts our massed singers is the wonderful star, Lesley Garrett.'

David Pountney, Chief Executive and Artistic Director

    Humperdinck

    This Hansel & Gretel is not sugary and sweet, it’s a decidedly dark and delicious confection. Richard Jones’s endlessly inventive production of Humperdinck’s gorgeous opera revels in the story’s more sinister moments whilst also casting a magical spell over audiences.
