 Fascinating! April 16, 2013 By Stanley J. (Baltimore, MD) See All My Reviews "Beautifully sung and a thrilling acting performance by Jonas Kaufmann and Isabel Rey. Neat contrast with Hansel und Gretel. Romantic and sad - Humperdinck's intentions clearly expressed by the performers." Report Abuse
 konigskinder February 26, 2012 By erika c. See All My Reviews "I paid full price for this opera.However I received only one disc. When will the second disc be shipped? If I had the second disc I am sure I would give the whole performance a 5 star rating,because Jonas Kaufmann sings and acts so beautiful like always.Not to mention his good looks.Ican not say enough good praises for him."
