Madison Lyric Stage Performs the Classic Masterpiece, Hansel and Gretel

The production played to sold out audiences and received rave reviews, as one fan exclaimed, “What an amazing performance! As usual, it was fantastic! ‘Loved it all.”

MLS Artistic Director, Marc Deaton directed one of the most beloved operas of all time, Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck.

Marc and his creative team transformed the Grave House into magic staging areas.

Audience members began their journeying in our small front parlor, staged as the children’s tenement house.

The audience then followed Hansel and Gretel to the main room with added tiered seating.

This room created both a dark forest and the witch’s gingerbread house.

The opera, in English, was suitable for all ages and numerous children were in attendance.
