General Information

Description

What do we long for when we love? Can our longings possibly be understood and fulfilled by another person?

The author, composer and draftsman E. T. A. Hoffmann scrutinised our longings, fantasies and dreams, and peered into the abyss as few others have done. Who does Hoffmann want to love? The doll, the singer, the prostitute? Or in fact just himself? Jacques Offenbach reworked this fascinating play as something midway between grand opéra, light-hearted operetta and Romantic blood-curdler. Stefan Herheim, one of the most exciting directors of the day, boldly sets out to explore the bizarre mechanics of human existence.

More information is available on the opera house's official website.
