MET OPERA LIVE IN HD: LES CONTES D’HOFFMANN
2009-2010 HD OPERA SEASON
DECEMBER 19, 2009 @ 1PM
RUN TIME: 3 HRS 35 MIN
Tony Award 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 Joseph Calleja in the tour-de-force title role. Anna Netrebko is the tragic Antonia and Alan Held sings the demonic four villains.
