Description

Directors Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser bring their characteristic wit and a dash of deliciously dark comedy to the fairytale opera Hansel and Gretel. Humperdinck’s music mixes catchy folk-like songs with sumptuous instrumental colour, making the result as tunefully approachable and musically memorable as opera gets. 

 

Diana Damrau and Angelika Kirchschlager are joined by two of Britain’s most revered musical figures: Thomas Allen, playing the role of Peter, and renowned conductor Colin Davis. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in full surround sound.
