The Tales of Hoffmann

Closed April 15, 2017

Jacques Offenbach's reminiscent opera on lost love

Why See The Tales of Hoffmann?

A superstar-laden operatic triumph

Leading international soprano Diana Damrau is set to make her LA Opera debut in 2017 as part of its 30th anniversary season, singing not one, but all four female lovers Olympia, Giulietta, Antonia and Stella of the titular character, Hoffmann. Conducted by iconic tenor Placido Domingo in his capacity as general director of the company, this operatic superstar pairing is a highly anticipated event. Co-produced with the Mariinsky Theater and Washington National Opera, the production is directed by Maria Domingo, working closely with the great tenor himself.

Tenor Vittorio Grigolo sings the role of poet E.T.A. Hoffmann, who engages in a boozy reminiscence of love in a tawdry tavern. Offenbach's final masterpiece captures the stories of Hoffmann's four lost loves in an ethereal, dreamlike fashion, with a compellingly romantic yet sinister score. Will the poet reach salvation? Only he can tell as he recounts
