Reviews: Hansel and Gretel at Glyndebourne

The revival of Humperdink’s Hansel and Gretel at Glyndebourne has been reviewed on ArtsDesk and The Stage:

ArtsDesk:  That music is lovingly attended by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Ticciati ever mindful of its Wagnerian colorations and invigorating rhythmic swagger. He has an especially talented cast to work with: Lydia Teuscher, a vibrant-voiced Gretel and, physically and vocally, a brilliant foil to Alice Coote’s deliciously rough and tumble Hänsel.

The Stage:  It is a tight show, but it falls to the London Philharmonic and conductor Robin Ticciati, already an old Hansel and Gretel hand, to contribute the requisite fairy-tale tenderness and warmth.

Hansel and Gretel is in repertoire at Glyndebourne until 28 August, and at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday 31 August 2010.
