 Missing booklet June 15, 2015 By Brian Lowery (Kearneysville, WV) See All My Reviews "As a recording with the original 160 page booklet I would give this five stars. However, it's the booklet that explains this "version" of Tales of Hoffmann that makes it valuable. MP3 files won't have it. The booklet includes background information about the many adaptations of Hoffmann and a complete libretto. I would try to find a used CD that contains the booklet." Report Abuse
