A classic executed with style: Hänsel und Gretel

Hanna Hipp (Hänsel), Jennifer Davis (Gretel) © ROH | Clive Barda
Designer/director Antony McDonald treads a perfectly weighted path between light and dark of the fairytale; conductor Sebastian Weigle cooks up a Wagnerian storm; Michaela Schuster steals the show. A treat.

Miah Persson (Countess), Sam Furness (Flamand) in background © Johan Persson
An affirmation of the importance of cultural values in the face of the abyss, or Richard Strauss fiddling while Europe burnt? Tim Albery's production leaves it to us to decide.

Nothing is better than when Berlioz ramps up the decibels. With a huge orchestra and choir and a deluxe starry cast assembled in Strasbourg, this was a special performance.

Sir Bryn Terfel (Hans Sachs) © ROH | Clive Barda
Holten's masonic lodge setting of Meistersinger gets a lot right but is occasionally uneven; Terfel and Hughes Jones are constantly good to listen to.
