The Tales of Hoffmann

Les Contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann)

Offenbach’s crowning achievement Les Contes d’Hoffmann was completed and premiered posthumously following the composer’s death in 1881, but the vibrant opera fantastique brings life to the audience and composer alike with its mythical plot and dazzling music. The opera draws from three stories by the eponymous poet E.T.A. Hoffmann, telling a tale of multifaceted love and artistry.
