DESCRIPTION

Walking the fine line between dreams and reality, this fantastical thrill-ride follows a poet’s search for the perfect love. Loosely based on the life of E.T.A. Hoffmann (whose “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” became the famous ballet), Offenbach’s three vignettes glitter with emotion and the glorious agony of the creative process. An imaginative art deco set and famous music make this opera a spectacular experience of the art form.
