Maryland Opera Studio: Les Contes d'Hoffmann

Clarice-Smith writeup

/by Jacques Offenbach
Leon Major, artistic director/

Offenbach's magnificent tale follows the poet Hoffmann's rhapsodic ruminations about the three great romances of his life. But will he discover his "true" true love? Presented in French with English surtitles. Running time: approximately 3 hours and 15 minutes, with two 15 minute intermissions.

Summary cribbed from
Hoping to exorcise the failure of his current love affair, the poet Hoffmann tells the tales of his three past loves--the doll-like Olympia, the high-class courtesan Giulietta, and the ambitious but delicate Antonia--and recalls how each was thwarted by the evil influence of his rival.

I've got an extra ticket. Anyone interested?
