This is The Tales of Hoffmann: Offenbach’s last and greatest work. It’s an intoxicating mix of emotion and dazzling music, including the famous, fiendishly difficult ‘Doll Song’.
Homegrown superstar soprano Jessica Pratt returns to Australia to sing all the female leads. It’s a rare soprano who can sing these roles and bring you deep into Offenbach’s emotional world. Pratt follows in the footsteps of Joan Sutherland and a handful of other stars who can pull it off. “Pratt… [sings] all the female roles with an irresistible french loaded with dramatic truth and with a vocal mastery worthy of the greatest” – ConcertoNet. Jean-François Borras sings the title character and Marko Mimica sings the four villains.
Celebrated director Damiano Michieletto (Il Viaggio a Reims) creates a brand new production of this beloved opera. Elaborate sets depicting Hoffmann’s three worlds will be designed and built by our team in Australia before travelling to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Carlo Montanaro conducts.
