**** “humour, fairy-dust, sweet treats… a tempting alternative to pantos.”
The Herald

Unwrap a tasty new winter treat with the world premiere of Christopher Hampson’s fantastical Hansel & Gretel as Scottish Ballet return to the Grand Opera House Belfast.

Meet Hansel, Gretel and a bewitching ballerina who is not at all as she seems. Deliciously surreal, mouth-wateringly inventive and with more than a sprinkle of festive magic - do you dare to go down to the woods this winter on an enchanted journey with Scotland’s national dance company?

This brand new Hansel & Gretel takes creative twists and turns inspired by the Grimm Brother’s famous fairy tale – and the stories and imagination of the people of Scotland. Humperdinck’s evocative score is performed live by the Scottish Ballet orchestra.
