Humperdinck: Hansel and Gretel, opera / Muff, Lechner, Nikiteanu; Zurich Opera House Orchestra & Children's Choir; Welser-Möst [Blu-ray]

Notes & Reviews:

Humperdinck's Ha¨nsel und Gretel steeped in the guileless world of folk-song: children's songs and dances, idyllic forest scenes, supernatural material and the central thematic chorale are rooted in German traditional music. Conductor Franz Welser-Mo¨st conducts the Zurich Opera House Orchestra in this Frank Corsaro production designed by Maurice Sendak. "This stylish and tasteful production is full of witty ideas: new characters are invented and added affectionately to familiar ones...the children involved are allowed to be charmingly themselves." Tagblatt der Stadt Zu¨rich
