The first Hansel & Gretel DVD on Decca: Laurent Pelly's striking new production of Humperdinck's enduringly popular masterpiece. The performance comes from Glyndebourne, where the production premiered in 2008. Laurent Pelly updates the action to the modern day, with the family living in a cardboard box and the witch's gingerbread house represented as the sweets and chocolate aisle of a supermarket! This makes for a striking twist on the traditional children's story. Filmed in High Definition with substantial bonus--a 38 minute documentary including interviews with the cast, conductor and director.
