This is the Metropolitan Opera production of circa 1983, with Judith Blegan and Frederika von Stade. A beautiful, traditional production, we have a DVD suitable for small children. Strong casting right down to the Sandman and Dew Fairy. No nightmares here! The late Thomas Fulton keeps it moving, and the principals give believable characterizations. No overacting, not "twee" in the least. A good English translation, with subtitles in multiple languages and a slide show history of Met Hansel productions. This is the one for children, and anyone who wants a traditional production. No dead bodies, no idiot children, no psychopathic witch, in short, NO EUROTRASH.
