Notes and Editorial Reviews


Premiered on December 23rd, 1893 under the baton of none other than Richard Strauss, Hansel und Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck has been associated with Christmas ever since. Today it is still most often performed opera at Christmas time.

Martin Haselböck, Michael Sturminger, a group of outstanding singers and a fine orchestra from the Vienna Academy bring the forest to the stage, creating a magical atmosphere that performances of Hansel und Gretel from Reinsberg are known for.
