Hansel & Gretel


at Thorington Theatre, presented by East Anglian Opera

A sparkling team from across the globe brings Humperdinck’s bewitching opera to life in this woodland setting.

This outdoor escapade of music and magic, led by iconic explorers Hansel and Gretel, is sure to satisfy long-stuck adventurous spirits!

This brand new English adaptation by award-winning East Anglian playwright, Simone Ibbett-Brown, is perfect for first-time opera-goers looking to try something new, and opera buffs alike.

There'll be outstanding singing, dancing and story-telling; sweets and spells; and a unique way to experience Thorington’s beautiful Theatre in the Woods.

Doors open 45 minutes before the show. The audience is invited to arrive early, bring a picnic (though no alcohol), enjoy some of the finest local wines, beers, ciders, ice creams and juices from the theatre bar, and soak up Mother Nature in this magical woodland setting.
