Les Contes d'Hoffmann - Met Opera on Demand | Thespie

Bartlett Sher’s imaginative production explores all the riches of Offenbach’s fantastical tale. Joseph Calleja is the poet Hoffmann, who is enthralled by a variety of women—neither of which turns out to be the perfect creature he envisions. Kathleen Kim scales the vocal heights of the mechanical doll Olympia, Anna Netrebko sings herself to death as Antonia, Ekaterina Gubanova is the sultry courtesan Giulietta, and Alan Held’s Four Villains foil all of Hoffmann’s plans.
