Notes and Editorial Reviews

This may well be the definitive production of one of the greatest fairy tales ever told. With brilliant imagination and technical wizardry this 1954 feature used stop-action animation and hand-sculpted dolls and sets to create a fantasy land of unearthly beauty. Set to Englebert Humperdinck's classic 1893 opera, sung by some of the most acclaimed performers of the 1950s, this recording was nominated for a Grammy Award.
