Hansel and Gretel In Collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay
The forest is dark and cold as night
But what do we see there in the clearing’s light?
A house made of sweets, oh what a delight!
How could a hungry child resist such a sight
But not all that’s sweet is cause for joy,
For who lives within has planned this ploy.
