Les Contes D Hoffmann

Director: John Schlesinger; Composer: Offenbach; Conductor: Evelino Pido; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Vittorio Grigolo, Leonardo Capalbo, Thomas Hampson, Sonya Yoncheva, Christine Rice, Sofia Fomina

Offenbach's operatic swansong "The Tales of Hoffmann" tells the story of a drunk poet, telling the tales of his three great lost loves: a mechanical doll, a sick young singer, and an Italian whore who stole his his soul.

His rival in love, Councillor Lindorf, has goaded him into telling the stories, only to realise that each of the girls were destroyed by a villain who bears an uncanny resemblance to Lindorf.

When Hoffmann finally sobers up he discovers that Lindorf has made off with latest love.
