Vittorio Grigolo in the title role and Kate Lindsey as Nicklausse in Offenbach's 'Les Contes d’Hoffmann.'

Today at 1 pm, join us for the Metropolitan Opera's revival of Jacques Offenbach's Les Contes D'Hoffmann. The production stars Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo, who is singing his first Met performances of the title role. The three heroines are sung by Erin Morley, Hibla Gerzmava and Christine Rice. 

Les Contes D'Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann) is based on three short stories by E.T.A. Hoffman and follows a troubled poet on his treacherous search for love. Hoffmann marks Grigolo's return to the Metropolitan Opera, after his notable performances as Rodolfo in Puccini's La Boheme, and the Duke in Verdi's Rigoletto. The production also features Thomas Hampson, who adds a new role to his extensive repertory as the Four Villains. Yves Abel conducts the score.
