From October 31 to November 27, 2016, Opera Bastille invites you to take pleasure in attending one of the most stunning operas, The Tales of Hoffmann (French: Les contes d'Hoffmann), an opera fantastique by the German-born French composer Jacques Offenbach (1819 – 1880).
The Tales of Hoffmann was originated from three short stories by the Romantic author Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann. It was written in the French language by the noted writer and librettist Paul Jules Barbier (1825 – 1901) and performed for the first time, on 10 February 1881, at the Parisian Opéra-Comique.
Composed of a prologue, three acts, and an epilogue, this wonderful and successful work will be performed in 205 minutes, including two intermissions.
