Hansel & Gretel

Presented by Pacific Northwest Ballet

A narrated, hour-long ballet for family audiences, Hansel & Gretel features PNB School students and special guest Ariana Lallone, former principal dancer with the Company. Created for young audiences, the ballet is based on the classic fairy tale of a brother and sister who become lost in the forest only to stumble upon a house made of delicious confections and a welcoming witch. Perfectly timed for children, Bruce Wells' Hansel & Gretel is a wonderful introduction to dance and theater.

Approximate running time: 1 hour
