Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new production of Les contes d’Hoffman staged by Stefan Herheim has been praised for its “thoughtfulness and creativity” (New York Times) and is vastly different from other stagings that have come before. This production was recorded at the 2015 Bregenz Festival. “The opera visit of the year—Bregenz is showing a Tales of Hoffmann that makes you forget everything you saw before.” (FAZ) The production was devised by Herheim as a search for one’s true self in a dazzling drag show.
