Les Contes d'Hoffmann

Director Barrie Kosky presents Offenbach's surreal and fantastical story as the disturbing nightmare of an artist who is in danger of losing ever more of his own self – in a production with only a single soprano in all three female roles, but several performers in the Hoffmann role. Here, the title role in the opera's first two acts will be sung for the first time in the piece's 132-year performance history in the way that the composer originally planned: by a baritone!
