German composer Engelbert Humperdinck (18541921) created one of the most beloved works in the operatic repertoire when he transformed a favorite Grimm Brothers fairy tale into his operatic masterpiece, Hansel and Gretel. First produced in Weimar during the Christmas season of 1893, it remains a musical rarity: an opera loved by children as well as adults.

Adelheid Wette, Humperdinck’s sister, based her libretto for the opera on the Grimm Brothers’ tale, adding characters such as the Dew Fairy and the Sandman, and incidents such as the dream pantomime to enhance the work’s appeal as a theatrical spectacle.

Humperdinck brought a Wagnerian swoop to the opera’s orchestration, deftly defining mood, building suspense, and infusing the story with childlike wonder. From its first performance, under the baton of Richard Strauss, Hansel and Gretel was a phenomenal success, produced at over 50 theaters in its first year alone.

This evergreen opera continues to charm audiences young and old with its buoyant musical fantasy. It is reprinted here in full score, with German text, from an authoritative German edition.

An instant and overwhelming success upon its first performance in 1893, Hnsel and Gretel has captivated audiences of all ages ever since. Engelbert Humperdinck combined the simplicity of German folk tunes with the sophistication of Wagnerian technique in a fairy-tale opera, based on the story by the Brothers Grimm.

Richard Strauss, who conducted the premiere, proclaimed it “a masterpiece of the highest quality.” Broadcast from Covent Garden in 1923, it was the first complete opera ever aired on radio, and eight years later it was the first to be transmitted live from the Metropolitan Opera.

This authoritative vocal score of the popular work contains a complete piano reduction of the score and an English singing translation of the text.
