"Jeffrey Tate presents this opera so honestly and with such ease and warmth that it seems new, and his cast is the best on CD" ClassicsToday
"(Tate's recording) has plenty of atmosphere, particularly in the rightly celebrated forest scene, which sounds quite mysterious here. Barbara Bonney's cool vocalism and pure tone suit Gretel...Marjana Lipovsek's Witch is a complete success. She has a most attractive voice and tons of insight. Her Witch is not trying to be funny for one moment - and is particularly effective because of that. She savours every word of her text and is the main feature of this recording." (Rodrigo Maffei Libonati)
Note: Outer box is a little scuffed
