The Metropolitan Opera: Les Contes d'Hoffmann Encore
The Met Opera's encore performance of Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, February 4 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones. Please note: not all cinemas showing the live transmission will present an encore showing.The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the title role of the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer in the Met's kaleidoscopic production of Offenbach's energetic, 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, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score.
