Offenbach
Les Contes d'Hoffmann

Who could resist the tales of Hoffmann when ardent-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda as the title hero of Offenbach’s opera spins them? Combining dark German romanticism with scintillating music, the stories tell of the poet’s ill-fated relationships with four women. Gedda is paired with the great singing actor George London as his constant nemesis. Jean Morel conducts this French masterpiece.
