Hansel and Gretel in times of austerity

Scottish Opera offers family-friendly Hansel and Gretel
20 Feb 12 / Seen and Heard
An ideal starting off point for youngsters into the wonderful world of opera
16 Feb 12 / Edinburgh Guide
Scottish Opera, shorn of a full-time orchestra and chorus, demonstrates it can still boast high musical standards
8 Feb 12 / Financial Times (via Google)
Nostalgic adults in the audience loved it all
7 Feb 12 / Telegraph
This is Hansel and Gretel for the very faint-hearted
7 Feb 12 / The Guardian
A joyful production
7 Feb 12 / The Stage
The music is delicious from beginning to end
7 Feb 12 / Opera Britannia
Scottish Opera’s Hansel and Gretel a sweet yet nourishing delight
Scottish Opera’s latest production is perhaps an unusual choice but the fairytale confection of Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck (not that one) has a deeper human element.
