Hansel and Gretel is a an opera by a German composer named Englebert Humperdinck, with words written by the composer’s sister Adelheid Wette. The story of the opera is based on the famous fairy tale, recorded in the 1800s by the Brothers Grimm, about two children who, lost in the forest, are lured into the home of an evil witch. They manage to escape the witch’s gingerbread house by outwitting her, and safely return to their family.
