Engelbert Humperdinck's <em>Hansel & Gretel</em> from the Lyric Opera of Chicago.

The Brother's Grimm usually lived up to their name and in Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, when the brother and sister are sent into the forest to find their dinner, they encounter the Sandman and Dew Fairy. Those meetings turn out nice, but that isn't the case when they run into the witch, who wants to fatten them up.

This production from the Lyric Opera of Chicago features just enough scary and gruesome ingredients, plus a food-flinging scene.
