The pictures of director of photography Harald Gunnar Paalgard give a spatial dimension to the unique sound of the London Symphony Orchestra, which recorded in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Performed by renowned opera soloists, it was a huge public success in European theatres. It dramatizes the enchanted tale with stunning images, and surround-sound revives the music for the eyes and the ears of the audience.
