Offenbach
Les Contes d'Hoffmann

Legendary conductor Pierre Monteux is at the helm of this opera that is a combination of enticing French music wedded to a sinister German story. With Richard Tucker in the title role, Hoffmann’s tales of the women he has loved—Roberta Peters, Risë Stevens, and Lucine Amara—have seldom been told so poetically. The tunes are as beguiling as Hoffman’s enchanting loves, but there is always a dark force at work. Martial Singher in a tour de force appears as all four of Hoffmann’s nemeses.
