Les Contes d' Hoffmann: Paris National Opera

About the Event

Jacques Offenbach's last work, 'Les Contes d'Hoffmann', is both bizarre and visionary, sensual and morbid. Pretty Yende sings Olympia in Robert Carsen's inventive staging at the Bastille Opera in Paris.

The watching, gentle muse, Hoffmann's haunted inebriation, Olympia's icy coloratura, Antonia's deathly song, Giulietta's Baudelairian sensuality: they all make 'Tales of Hoffmann' the composer's absolute masterpiece, just as he had hoped.

Sung in French, with French and English surtitles.
