Fascinating!April 16, 2013By 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
konigskinderFebruary 26, 2012By 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."Report Abuse
