Scottish Ballet present a wee version of a big ballet...

Join Hansel & Gretel as they go on an adventure deep into the woods… Along the way you’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 show is the perfect way for young children and their families to discover the magic of ballet.

Dancers from Scottish Ballet will feature in this family favourite alongside talented students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The performance is set to the music of Engelbert Humperdinck, recorded live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra

Recommended for wee ones aged 3+

The performance lasts approximately 50 minutes.


For thrills, laughs and shivers for the whole family, Wee Hansel and Gretel really takes the cake.

'a charming, bite-sized ballet that will keep children hooked'


A splendidly pitched piece for children aged three to eight… both charmingly humorous and brilliantly executed.
