The Met Live in HD: Offenbach's "Les Contes d'Hoffmann" at Peterborough Players

Offenbach's "Les Contes d'Hoffmann" The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece, in the Met’s wild, kaleidoscopic production. Soprano Hibla Gerzmava faces the operatic hurdle of singing all three heroines—each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann’s desire.
