A stunning international cast tell this bewitching fairy tale in a concert performance of Engelbert Humperdinck's opera.
The greatest operatic fairy tale of them all – magical, dark and bewitching – on the perils of growing up. A story to captivate and delight children and to enchant and enthral grown-ups too.
Based on the Grimm Brothers’ celebrated tale, Engelbert Humperdinck’s opulent opera brings together unforgettable melodies that have all the innocence of childhood, rich Wagnerian splendours and dazzling orchestral colours.
Among the stunning international cast are golden-toned mezzo soprano Elizabeth DeShong and sparkling soprano Laura Wilde in the title roles. Internationally renowned opera conductor Sir Andrew Davis directs the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
