This Christmas, venture into the dark, fairy tale realm of Hansel & Gretel for a fantastical evening at the ballet. Inspired by the old-fashioned magic of silent movies and music hall vaudeville, this gorgeous ballet will transport you to an enchanting world with large-scale cinematic effects and delicious original music. Follow feisty Gretel and hungry Hansel through a forest of tangled forks, led by the light of a moon made of cheese! Pirouette with forest fairies, a cabaret of sparkling stars that light up the forest. At the Witching Hour, enter the Gingerbread House – an edible carnival of the grotesque – oozing and bursting at its biscuit seams and dripping with the promise of sweetness to come – but there’s a sting in the tale.
Don’t miss this tasty treat of a ballet, visiting Christchurch 23-25 November!
