Event Details

"Le Petit Verre is pleased to present their very first production, Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. The setting is a post-apocalyptic cityscape that is home to two youngsters, Hansel and Gretel, who are plagued by abusive parents and starvation. Upon ejection from the shack they call home, the two set out in search of sustenance, only to find the ghosts of their own fears lurking in the corners of what's left of civilisation. Their tale involves a hallucinogenic journey to hell and back, which is marked by the presence of a terrifying witch with a thirst for the flesh of children. Come with us on a wild ride through an iconic fairy tale, as told by some of Scotland's finest vocalists through a contemporary perspective.
