5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious
My heart sank when I saw that the BBC had chosen this production for its Christmas Day dose of culture. I love the opera but this production had been indifferently reviewed and its directors, Patrice Caurier & Moshe Leiser, can produce cheap and nasty work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hansel & Gretel not helped by the close-ups, 14 Oct 2009
