Synopsis

Humperdinck and his librettist and sister, Adelheid Wette, originally conceived Hansel and Gretel as a children's play with songs for their family to perform. It subsequently evolved into a full-scale opera. Hansel and Gretel's acclaimed premiere was on 23 December 1893 in Weimar, conducted by the composer Richard Strauss. The opera has been associated with Christmas ever since.
