Hansel and Gretel - Act III

Dawn has come, and the Dew fairy appears to awaken Hansel and Gretel who discover, appearing out of the mist, a candy covered gingerbread cottage! They break off pieces to eat and the owner of the cottage, the witch Rosina Daintymouth, appears and casts a spell on the children. Hansel is trapped in a magic cage, and the witch tries to teach Gretel how to tend the oven where she bakes gingerbread children! But Gretel repeats the magic spell, and Hansel escapes from the cage. Together, the children push the witch into the oven! All the gingerbread children around the cottage turn into real children. Mother and Father arrive and are happily greeted as the opera ends!
