As he sits in a tavern, the poet Hoffmann recounts the stories of his three loves: a doll, a singer, and a courtesan. His adventures take him from Munich to Venice, always accompanied by his most faithful love, his muse.
Offenbach’s masterpiece moves in a fantasy world, with showpiece arias for the bravura cast, the gorgeous “Barcarolle,” and a truly moving tribute to what it means to be an artist.
Don’t miss this extraordinary work that is equal parts fantasy, realism, and genuine passion, performed by the Madison Opera.
