Product Description

Live performance of Englebert Humperdinck's fairytale opera 'Hansel and Gretel', recorded at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 2008. Colin Davis conducts this performance with an acclaimed cast that includes Thomas Allen, Angelika Kirchschlager and Diana Damrau.

Review

'Angelika Kirchschlager's tousled, boyish Hänsel and Diana Damrau's Gretel are dramatically convincing and vocally superb, while their parents, excellently sung and played by Elizabeth Connell and Thomas Allen, earn our sympathy as well as our censure. Pumeza Matshikiza's goblin-like Sandman is truly magical and Anita Watson's feather-dusting Dew Fairy another amusing creation. Colin Davis, unafraid to relish the icing on the cake, draws a warm, effulgent sound from the orchestra.' --Evening Standard --This text refers to the DVD edition.
