LES CONTES D’HOFFMANN (THE TALES OF HOFFMANN)

The A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute presents the many romantic adventures of

Hoffmann, a poet searching for love -- only to find that it lies just beyond

his reach. At every turn his actions are thwarted by a devilish character

who turns up in Vienna, Munich and Venice. Offenbach’s glorious score is

one of the most expressive in all of 19th century French opera.
