Les Contes d'Hoffmann


  • Tennessee Performing Arts Center (map)

Walking the fine line between dreams and reality, this fantastical thrill-ride takes the audience along on a poet’s exhaustive search for the perfect woman.  Loosely based on the life and loves of E.T.A. Hoffmann (whose “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” became a really famous ballet), Offenbach’s vignettes glitter with sensuality, emotion and the glorious agony of the creative process.  An imaginative art deco set and famous tunes you already know make this a night of must-see theatre.
