Scottish Ballet's Wee Hansel and Gretel

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 perform this family favourite alongside students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s BA in Modern Ballet.

Recommended for wee ones aged 3 - 8.




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

The List


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