Hansel and Gretel: Take a closer look

Hansel and Gretel opened its national tour at the Abbey Theatre on 8 February, a tour which will conclude here at An Grianán on Saturday 7 March.

As you would expect from our national opera company this is a gorgeous production with very high production values as you can see from these images taken by Patrick Redmond. Set & Costume Design is by Jamie Vartan, and lighting is by Sarah-Jane Shiels.

Hansel and Gretel is a co-production by Irish National Opera, Theatre Lovett and Abbey Theatre.
