We are delighted to present a very special digital storybook, exploring the fairytale world of Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera Hansel and Gretel.
With brand-new illustrations from James Mayhew, live recordings from the cast and text from director Serenna Wagner, this is a charming introduction to the opera especially for children – though we think grown-ups will enjoy it too!

Resources for schools
If you enjoyed the book, we also have lots of other educational resources and videos available below. Each one explores a different aspect of the opera: from what it’s like to play the characters, to sing-along workshops, and introductions to the set, costumes and lighting.
We’re making these available on a ‘pay-what-you-can’ basis, with a suggested donation of £5. We rely on your generosity to help us continue our work and support our talented artists, so all donations are gratefully received!
