Les Contes d’Hoffmann

The impossible loves of a poet

Teatro Regio, Friday 30 January 2009 at 8 pm

Les Contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann), the unfinished opera by composer Jacques Offenbach, on the libretto by Jules Barbier from the novel of the same name by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, will open on Friday 30 January at Teatro Regio.

With the staging by Teatro Regio, realized in co-production with Teatro Real de Madrid, Théâtre du Capitole Toulouse and Israeli Opera of Tel Aviv, one of the most atypical titles of French opera is proposed, one which Italian audiences find  delightful though not well-known (the last production in Torino was 35 years ago). The stage direction is by  Nicolas Joël, who for health reasons will not be able to be present; Stephane Roche will be standing in for him. On the podium Emmanuel Villaume, who returns to Torino after having conducted the production of Ariane et Barbe-Bleue last season. The sets are by Ezio Frigerio while Franca Squarciapino has created the costumes. The chorus of the Teatro Regio will be directed by Maestro Claudio Fenoglio. Lighting is by Vinicio Cheli.

The opera, realized with the support of the Compagnia di San Paolo, will be broadcast live by Rai Radio3 on Friday 30 January.
