Vittorio Grigolo stars in the title role of Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann, opposite Abkhazian soprano Hibla Gerzmava as all four of the opera’s heroines—the mechanical doll Olympia, the consumptive artist Antonia, the courtesan Giulietta, and the self-absorbed actress Stella. Kate Lindsey reprises her performances as Nicklausse and Thomas Hampson adds a role to his expansive Met repertory as the Four Villains. Yves Abel conducts. Three fantastic stories by the outstanding writer, painter and composer, representative of late Romanticism, E. T. A. Hoffmann are being intertwined in Les Contes d’Hoffmann – “The Sandman”, “The Lost Reflection” and “Councilor Krespel”; as well as other fictitious characters from his works.

Duration: 225 min.
