The opera Ã¬Hansel and Gretel" was composed by Englebert Humperdinck during 1891-1892. He described it as a fairy tail opera that was written at the urging of his sister Adelheid, the author of the opera's libretto. The overture weaves the many rich folk-music themes of the larger opera around the most famous theme, the Ã¬Evening Benediction." This performance is by the University of Miami Frost School of Music Saxophone Ensemble, Dale Underwood, saxophone instructor.
