From January 21 to February 14, 2020 Paris Opéra Bastille invites Offenbach connoisseurs to come and discover Les Contes d’Hoffmann. The occasion to rediscover one of the most popular masterpieces ever written by the French-German composer…

"Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour, souris à nos ivresses...". You know this tune, it’s the barcarolle song from Jacques Offenbach’s magical opera, Les Contes d’Hoffmann that Opéra Bastille produces from January 21 to February 2020. A piece of work in tribute to magic realism in literature through the main character, Hoffmann and “in which all resemblance to reality is abolished in favor of an imaginary world with its own rules”.

An opera in three acts, one prolog and one epilog in which Hoffmann tells us about his loving memories while leading us “through a universe in which dream and reality intermingle”. Among the conquests he talks about; Olympia, Antonia and Giuletta for the three acts, Stella for the epilog and an introductive prolog making the Muse step in and who looks like the poet’s best friend, Nicklausse.

A Robert Carsen production for the Opéra Bastille who offers a mise en abyme for a unique dive behind the scenes of the opera. The occasion to discover – or even rediscover – one of the most popular French works and one of the most played ones in the world. Let’s book a seat, friends!
