As delightful as they are dark, fairy tales fire the imaginations of every generation. Composers have never been able to resist their appeal. Here the Hallé offers an enchanting afternoon which opens with the overture to Humperdinck’s ginger-bread opera, 'Hansel and Gretel', and includes music from Ravel’s 'Mother Goose'.

Coming right up to date, there will be a premiere of a new piece based on Hans Christian Andersen’s 'The Wild Swans' – written specially for the Hallé Children’s Choir, featuring young actors from Manchester Metropolitan University, as well as over 200 young singers from Greater Manchester.

Engelbert Humperdinck : Hansel and Gretel Overture
