GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET
Les Contes D’Hoffmann

Air date: Sat., Sept. 5, 8:00 pm

 

Tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the role of Hoffman, the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer in Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece. Hibla Gerzmava, Erin Morley and Christine Rice sing the three heroines – each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann’s desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains. Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score for a Bartlett Sher’s wild, kaleidoscopic production.
