The German opera takes a turn from the dense, Teutonic tales of Wagner towards the wondrous, fairy-tale whims of the Brothers Grimm as the Zurich Opera brings Engelbert Humperdink's premiere opera to life with a colorful performance highlighted by the music of The Children's Chorus of the Zurich Opera House and the Orchestra of the Zurich Opera House, and featuring the talents of actors Alfred Muff, Liliana Mikiteanu, and Malin Hartelius. Originally commissioned by Humperdink's sister Adelheid Wette and subsequently hailed by Richard Strauss as a true masterpiece, this groundbreaking opera can now be enjoyed by parents and children across the globe with a release that brings the wonder of the theater home.
