Love... Passionate, elusive, obsessive...
Hoffmann is obsessed with three beautiful women—or is it one mercurial woman, split into three different personalities? The great story of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s love life is retold in a new version incorporating some of the poet-composer’s own music. International star Robert Chafin (Covent Garden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Wiener Staatsoper) plays Hoffmann.
