This modern retelling of Humperdinck's fairy tale opera - described by Richard Strauss as "a masterpiece of the highest quality" - combines Romanticism, lyricism, and exuberant playfulness in a rich orchestration. Director Laurent Pelly places the siblings in a cardboard shack, and the iconic gingerbread house has been re-envisioned as shelves of child-enticing junk food. This popular Glyndebourne production of H©Þnsel und Gretel featuring guest conductor Kazushi Ono presents its themes, consumerism and environmental degradation, with lightness and charm in a shadowy milieu of menace.
