Notes and Editorial Reviews

Natalie Dessay and Laurent Pelly are reunited once again for Offenbach’s 'Les Contes d’Hoffmann', staged at Barcelona’s Liceu opera house in early 2013.

Based on the stories of the influential German writer ETA Hoffmann, filled with magic, dark humour and grotesquerie, Les Contes d’Hoffmann has a complex structure with three acts in ‘flashback’ as the drunken poet Hoffmann recalls three unhappy love affairs.
