In a crowded tavern, the poet Hoffmann, urged on by his fellow drinkers, recounts the stories of his wildest, most outrageous loves and losses. First performed after the death of its composer, Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann is a masterful riot of characters and intrigue. Brought to life by a stellar cast, Opera Opulenza’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann reveals a world of danger, delirium and desire.  Sung in French with English subtitles.
