In this enduring story based on the classic Grimm fairy tale and transformed into an opera by 19th century composer Engelbert Humperdinck, imaginative siblings embark on a precarious adventure to find something to eat when their fortunes turn for the worse. This tale of lost children, candy sweets and an evil witch premiered in Weimar, Germany, in 1893. The opera continues to be admired for its fun and folk music-inspired themes, including the famous “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.”
