Humperdinck: Hansel und Gretel / Hofstetter/Semperoper Dresden, Papoulkas, Gabler, Ketelsen [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Engelbert Humperdinck (1854-1921) transformed Grimm's beloved fairy tale "Hansel und Gretel" into opera entertainment for everyone from young children to the serious music lover; this DVD is a tumultuous and joyful production for both children and adults. Director Katharina Thalbach cheerfully evokes a magic world of woodland sprites and candy dreams and creates an enchanting fantasy world filled with high spirits, fairytale fantasy and genial comedy. Recorded live at the world-famous Dresden Semperoper in December 2006, the production is also musically of the highest rank, with international soloists in the main roles, accompanied by the Sachsische Staatskapelle Dresden under Michael Hofstetter. The state-of-the-art recording features a booklet with an informative essay on the composition and the production as well as a synopsis of the opera plot.
