Hoffmann, poet and epitome of the hapless genius, awaits Stella, the prima donna and his latest sweetheart. Seduced by his muse into a fantasy world, he experiences a true bacchanalia between reality and dream, carried by sensually beguiling sounds: Olympia, the charming, fragile doll, the tender Antonia, who dies from her art and Giulietta, the beautiful, refined courtesan and thief of men’s souls.
