Scottish Ballet is back out on the road for the second leg of its tour of Wee Hansel and Gretel – a specially adapted wee version of a big ballet.

Audiences will join Hansel & Gretel as they go on an adventure deep into the woods.

Along the way they’ll meet a rather beguiling Witch and her mysterious raven, before arriving in an enchanted gingerbread house filled with dancing sweet treats and toys that come to life.

This specially adapted 50-minute show is the perfect way for young children aged 3–8 years and their families to discover the magic of ballet.

It is coming to The Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock on 27 and 28 September.

Dancers from Scottish Ballet will perform in this well-known fairytale alongside talented students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s BA in Modern Ballet.

Wee Hansel & Gretel will be performed to the music of Engelbert Humperdinck, recorded live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra, making it a colourful interpretation of the Grimm Brothers’ famous fairytale.
