The 84th Season Of The Metropolitan Opera On Classical Wyoming
Saturday, January 31st at 11:00am: Les Contes d'Hoffmann
A beautiful mechanical doll. An irresistible courtesan. A visit from beyond the grave—or is it just an illusion? All these, plus an imaginative hero who never gets the girl, show up in the charming, creepy, deeply moving tales of Hoffmann.
Vittorio Grigolo and Matthew Polenzani take turns playing the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title. The roles of the three heroines are shared by an impressive lineup of singing actresses, including Hibla Gerzmava, Susanna Phillips, Erin Morley, Audrey Luna, Christine Rice, and Elena Maximova. Thomas Hampson sings the Four Villains, and James Levine and Yves Abel conduct Offenbach’s sparkling score.
