by Jacques Offenbach with libretto by Jules Barbier
Garnett Bruce, director
Douglas Kinney Frost, conductor
Follow the love-drunk poet E.T.A. Hoffmann, as he finds himself on a journey through his own fated love stories. Guided by his muse disguised as confidant Nicklausse, Hoffmann becomes the protagonist pursuing the love of women he has already written about: a mechanical doll, a critically ill opera singer, and a Venetian courtesan. Offenbach’s evocative score — the pinnacle of 19th-century French opera — weaves unforgettable melodies along the way. Will Hoffmann find love with real-life opera singer Stella? Or will he again find himself using personal heartbreak to fuel his art?
