Following 2018's production of The Turn of the Screw, we continued our collaboration with English National Opera with Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. In the unique environment of Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, the Grimm Brothers' fairytale could be experienced anew in this operatic retelling, sung in English. Ben Glassberg conducted members of the ENO Orchestra, with direction by Open Air Theatre Artistic director Timothy Sheader.
