Notes and Editorial Reviews
Art, sex and death-the obligatory destinations of every great work, this banal trilogy is nevertheless painted with a unique palette in the Tales of Hoffmann by Offenbach. Great thoughts are often quite close to the trite, a hair's breadth away from common ground. Olivier Py
