Narrator Luis Avila elevates this fantasy in the best possible way. His deep, rich voice and expressiveness will enrapture listeners. Ofelia, a Spanish child in the 1940s, is in an oppressive situation. She and her heavily pregnant mother have moved in with her brutal stepfather, Vidal, a psychopathic commander for the Franco regime. All those around him are subjected to his cruelty and ruthlessness. Ofelia finds refuge in a nearby forest, where fairy tales are not otherworldly. A parallel world full of magical creatures becomes her reality as she escapes into this astonishing realm. Interesting sound effects coupled with the narration make this production a joy to listen to, reminding all of us that stories have power.
