Summary:
One of the most beloved fairy tales of all times, the Brothers Grimm's story was further immortalized by Engelbert Humperdinck's lushly romantic operatic adaptation, expertly led in this broadcast by conductor Andrew Davis. Jennifer Johnson Cano and Heidi Stober sing the title roles in this English-langauge version, with Robert Brubaker giving a tour-de-force performance as the evil Witch. Dwayne Croft and Michaela Martens are the siblings' parents, and Carolyn Sproule as the Sandman and Ying Fang as the Dew Fairy complete the cast.
Contents:
Overture
Goosey, goosey gander
Alright, I'll tell you on one condition
Little brother, dance with me
Hansel! What the hell d'you think you are doing?
Out! Out! Go at once
Ral-la-la-la, ral-la-la-la
But wait...where are Hansel and Gretel?
At night it's a gruesome and sordid place
The witch's ride
A dwarf stood in the forest but never spoke
Hurray! Just look at these berries, the basket's groaning!
Cuckoo, cuckoo, eggs are blue!
Gretel, I think we've lost our way
I am the little sandman
Where each child lays down its head
Dream pantomime
Prelude
When dew drops on the daisy
Where am I?
I feel so good here in the wood
Keep still! Not a sound!
Nobody answers
Greedy little mousey
My name's Rosina Lickspittle
Halt! Hocus pocus
Now Gretel, you're the sensible one
The dough is made
So hopp hopp hopp, galopp lopp lopp
Now wake up, it's time to eat
Ja hei! Now that the witch is dead
The dead arise, but cannot see
Look...they are standing there!
