Nicholas Sheffo
Fulvue Drive-in, April 2011

The most interesting piece here is Englebert Humperdinck’s Hansel und Gretel with Humperdinck (Art Haus) where the one time romantic singer has pulled off making the classic tale into an opera that has its moments. In this second Blu-ray of the work, he appears performing in it and it will come as a shock to those used to seeing him as a romance singer/icon that sure, he became older. However, with classic this like Release Me and After The Lovin’, it turns out he can pull off more than just a few hits. You have to see it to believe it. The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is darker more than usual and the HD just cannot resolve the darkness as well as one would like, but the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) lossless 7.1 mix is not bad, if limited. A nice making of piece is one of the extras.
