Offenbach: Les Contes d’Hoffmann

The poet E. T. A. Hoffmann as the protagonist of his own fantastic tales: In his encounter with three women – Olympia, Antonia, and Giulietta – he searches in vain for love and for himself. Will he draw the strength for art from his failure in life? Stage director Daniele Finzi Pasca brings an enchanting, fairy-tale-like spectacle to the stage with all the colourful means of theatrical magic.
