Hansel and Gretel

Many operas are based on stories that you already know. For example, Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck is based on the fairy tale of the same name. In this familiar scene, Hansel and Gretel discover a gingerbread house in the forest. The wicked witch is about to make her appearance.
