January 18 to February 1:  Offenbach conjures up a world governed by rules of its own in which he places Hoffmann, a poet and composer under a curse. Hoffmann recalls his past love affairs and guides us through a universe where dreams and reality intertwine.

This opera about the misfortunes of Hoffmann, whose obsession is to triumph in love, was left unfinished by Offenbach on his death in 1880. It narrates the painful tales of his relationships with three women: the cold doll Olympia, the fragile and innocent Antonia, and Giulietta, the heartless courtesan.
