Notes & Reviews:

Financial Times
Something wonderful unearthed... .A dramatically compelling evening full of glorious music.

Tenor superstar Jonas Kaufmann leads the cast in the first-ever DVD release of the beautiful fairytale opera from the composer of Hansel und Gretel.

The German tenor is "the fairytale prince of most opera-goers' dreams - young, reckless, beautiful" and Isabel Rey is the Goosegirl star in the acclaimed Zurich production of Humperdinck's magical opera.

Konigskinder - a story of love tested beyond endurance - premiered at New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1910. Humperidinck's setting of the modern fairytale saw him further develop the musical language of his much-loved Hansel und Gretel. Konigskinder is enjoying a revival in popularity with productions panned in several major European houses.
