SYNOPSIS

The Tales of Hoffmann, composed by Jacques Offenbach takes place over a series of flashbacks, as the famous German poet Hoffmann tells the story of his three great failed romances at a bar, ruining his fourth great romance in the process. Each woman represents a part of the whole that he is seeking: Olympia, the beautiful doll, Antonia, the singer and Giulietta, the courtesan. As his current love, the prima donna Stella, abandons him in despair, Hoffmann once more dedicates himself to his true love: poetry.

Directed by HOT Artistic Director, Henry Akina, who celebrates his 20th Season with the company. Mr. Akina is joined by Maestro Vincent de Kort.  The pair last led HOT’s acclaimed production of Siren Song (2015).
