    “Hans and Greta” 
    based on Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera Hänsel und Gretel
    arranged by Margrit Dürr and Julian Metzger (sung in German)

    For everyone ages 6 and up

    When Hans and Greta sing and dance, they naturally want the audience to join in to make it really fun! In the process, things sometimes get broken, especially when an unknown woman with lots of ideas has her fingers in the pie. No wonder, then, that the mother scolds Hans and Greta and sends them to the forest to pick berries. There, in addition to berries, there are also mushrooms, but they are dangerous and can have unexpected effects. Besides, there is this woman again –is she fun or actually the opposite? In any case, she doesn’t like it when people nibble on her little house without asking and speak badly of her. Then she can become really unpleasant ... Gretel becomes Greta, the witch’s broom becomes a vacuum cleaner. Hans and Greta is based on the Grimm Brothers’ fairy-tale but is set in the here and now. It’s about good and evil and about what makes reasonable judgments versus mere prejudices: “If I’m not sure, I’d better look twice!” The young Festival audience will be actively involved in this colorful and witty piece of musical theater fun. And some of the little guests will even suddenly become Hans or Greta.
