Les Contes D`Hoffman (Met Opera Series)
Tony awardï¿½ winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific) directs this new production, returning after the triumph of his met Barber of Seville (seen live in Hd in the 2006-07 season). Offenbach's fictionalized take on the life and loves of the German romantic writer E.T.a. Hoffmann is a fascinating psychological journey. Met music director James Levine conducts star tenor Rolando Villazon in the tour-de-force title role, with Anna Netrebko as the tragic Antonia, Elina Garanea as the ambiguous Nicklausse, and Rene Pape as the demonic four villains.
