JACQUES OFFENBACH

Les Contes d'Hoffmann

Tony Award–winning director Bartlett Sher creates a fantastical world of magic and delusion, aspiring romance and thwarted love, hope and deceit. Tenor Matthew Polenzani headlines Offenbach’s fabulously twisted tale in the title role of the poet Hoffmann. A stellar trio of artists—soprano Erin Morley as Olympia, the doll who springs to life; soprano Olga Kulchynska as Antonia/Stella, the matinee-idol diva; and mezzo-soprano Veronica Simeoni as Giulietta, the decadent Venetian—portray Hoffmann’s past loves, with bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni as the four villains. Daniele Rustioni conducts.
