Music Education
C. Hastings | San Diego | 02/03/2009

"I used this CD to teach 1st -8th graders a German Opera. The kids loved the story and the Nibblewitch slowly transforms right before your eyes so the scare is minimal. The subtitles also rhyme so it is fun to read in English."
Musically perfect
Chung-Hoon P. Chun | Lawrence, KS United States | 01/19/2008

"This is a fantastic video. Great orchestra and a wonderful cast, all conducted with great energy. These performers understand and interpret the music exactly right--perfectly within a great tradition, but not jaded by it. There are more radical productions out there (which some might translate as "interesting," or "imaginative"), but there isn't a better one.

Highest recommendations!"

"Pleasantly surprised with Humperkinck's music. The dvd is a movie, not a stage production, but a movie can make the fantasy more believable. Wonderful voices and acting. It was interesting to see children in the audience, along with their reactions to the movie/opera. Again, the music makes the entire production most enjoyable. I cetrainly look forward to viewing it again soon."
