The Royal Opera: The Tales of Hoffmann

Sunday 19 January 2025


Four women: four curious love stories. Juan Diego Flórez leads a fantastic cast in Offenbach’s dream-like opera in the Royal Ballet and Opera: The Tales of Hoffman.

Through the haze of the years, a poet remembers the women he loved. But when it comes to matters of the heart, nothing is as it seems. Particularly when the devil himself is involved…

Journeying back to his school days, Hoffmann relives his childhood romance with Olympia, a model student in every sense.

Doomed love follows him into adulthood, where the dancer, Antonia, is taken from him too soon.

Meanwhile, the sensual courtesan Giulietta has her own secret agenda. As memory and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred, will Hoffmann find the enigmatic Stella before it is too late?
