The poet E.T.A. Hoffmann as the protagonist of his own fantastic tales: In his encounter with three women - Olympia, Antonia, and Giulietta - he searches in vain for love and for himself. Will he draw the strength for art from his failure in life? Or will he fail in himself, even in alcohol? Like in a kaleidoscope, ever new constellations and shimmering colours mix German romanticism and French esprit.

On the 19 + 22 September, EuroArts Music recorded Offenbach’s 'Les Contes d’Hoffmann' at the Staatsoper Hamburg. Stage director Daniele Finzi Pasca brings an enchanting, fairytale-like spectacle to the stage with all the colourful means of theatrical magic. French star tenor Benjamin Bernheim shines in his role debut of Hoffmann: "Benjamin Bernheim's art of orchestrating timbre will continue to cause emotional turmoil for days to come for those who were able to experience this operatic bliss" (Süddeutsche Zeitung).

Accompany us and E.T.A. Hoffmann on a festival of poetry and colours!
