The sensitive poet Hoffmann would do anything to find the perfect woman, but he is so unlucky in love, he just can’t catch a break.
First, he falls for Olympia but soon discovers that she is a mechanical doll. Then, he professes his love for Antonia, who’ll die if she sings – and this is opera so she does both! The tables are turned as Giulietta seduces him but then callously casts him aside.
The gorgeous music (featuring the famous Barcarolle) combined with brilliant theatricality make this a must-see for seasoned opera fans and newbies alike!
