Hansel & Gretel: Opera Arts HANDMADE, LIMITED EDITION POSTER
Hansel & Gretel: This composition honours the opera that delights adults and children alike, in the most traditional way, just as it also honours the child in all of us.
In the same way most adults first saw a picture of Hansel & Gretel in a book when they were children, this piece shows Hansel & Gretel emerging from the enchanted forest being led by “the white bird” towards the witch’s gingerbread cottage.
The Brothers Grimm never said what kind of bird it was, just that it was a “white bird” and here it is certainly a fantasy bird.
From the dark of the deep forest edged with fantasy flowers, the children are lured towards a bright glade where sits the gingerbread house, and the smoke streaming from the chimney, suggesting a warm welcome that may be awaiting them...or will it?
