Loved by hundreds and thousands of people the world over, Hansel & Gretel is one of the most famous operas ever written, and Opera Queensland and Shake & Stir Theatre Co are serving this Humperdinck classic especially for primary school students in the 21st century.

Join Hansel and Gretel on their journey into the Ilsenstein forest as they hunt for fruit for the family table, but what they discover is far more appealing… do they dare taste the sweet façade? Hansel & Gretel will enchant students as they are swept from the classroom into a contemporary world of magic, fairies and sweets in a delicious story of survival and family bonds. Performed by a talented cast of Queensland’s most energetic opera talents and directed by the multiple award-winning team at Shake & Stir Theatre Co – Hansel & Gretel is the opera that will leave youngsters hungry for more.

This is an enchanting opportunity to introduce your children and grandchildren to the world of opera in a way that’s fun, engaging and truly magical.
