The fable Hansel and Gretel is a tall tale that follows two starving children as they attempt to survive their own evil parents, as well as a wicked witch. After Hansel and Gretel are left to die in the woods by their two evil parents, they stumble upon a gingerbread house. The gingerbread house, however, houses a malevolent and hungry witch who plots to kill the children. It is up to Hansel and Gretel to escape this fate in the thrilling fairy tale written by the Grimm brothers.Fairy tale operas are performed entirely in song and music and are based on fables and myths.
