Hoffmanns Erzählungen (The Tales of Hoffmann)
This fantastical and elaborately conceived opera in five acts by Jacques Offenbach revolves around the unfulfilled amorous encounters of Hoffmann. Three stories written by E. T. A. Hoffmann provide the basis for the piece: “The Sandman”, “Councilor Krespel” and “The Lost Reflection”. The protagonists of the various stories are identified in the opera with the author himself.
In French with supertitles in different languages.
