    Toronto City Opera presents the classic opera Les Contes d’Hoffmann (Tales of Hoffmann) by Jacques Offenbach. It will be presented in French with projected titles in English. This is a fully-staged opera with professional soloists backed by a large, enthusiastic chorus. There’s a majesty and mystery about the tales that the tortured poet Hoffmann recounts about his three great loves. But under the spotlight surrounded by all the gaiety of the chorus and from his wine-fuelled memory, how much fantasy has been injected into the tales of this master weaver of stories? We will be setting the tales in the late 19th century, in the time the opera was written. This new production explores the fantastical versus truth, a Dionysian journey where poetry and art might be a means of healing.

    $55 Premium Orchestra; $50 Orchestra; $35 Student (all ticket prices add small service fee). Season subscriptions and group rates are available.
