Hansel and Gretel (A nightmare in eight scenes) is a reimagining of the famous tale, with specially commissioned poetry and chamber music, and puppetry and animations, all projected live on to a large screen.
Created and produced by Goldfield Productions, Hansel and Gretel appear as table-top puppets struggling in an unforgiving world of wooden forests, desolate villages and a fearsome predator, creating a sinister fable for our times, with music by Guildhall professor Matthew Kaner.
