First the good news: the Royal Opera’s new production of Hänsel und Gretel was certainly well sung, if ultimately lacking the sheer memorability of a great performance. Jennifer Davis and Hanna Hip
This is definitely the classy, quality-stamped family show of the season — but, unlike the witch pushed into her own cauldron, it hasn’t quite come to the boil.
Overall, it’s not a ground-breaking production but it is enjoyable, well sung and very beautiful – just what you need in the run-up to Christmas....
Sebastian Weigle conduce l’Orchestra, ispiratissima, in una racconto improntato ad una narratività leggera, poggiata su ampie arcate melodiche sostenute da un architrave ritmico sempre ben presente
Weigle and the orchestra get a little on the frantic side, but Gerhard Siegel storms through the part of the witch with comic gusto.
