Hoffmann is presented by the Teatro Real in a new co-production with Turins Teatro Regio, Thtre du Capitole de Toulouse and the New Israel Opera. First performed in Paris at the Opra-Comique in 1881, The Tales of Hoffmann recounts Hoffmanns search for the Ideal Woman assisted by his friend and alter-ego Nicklausse.

Other cast members include Giorgio Surjan, Desire Rancatore, Isabel Rey and Batrice Uria-Monzn. Nicolas Joel directs, with set designs by Ezio Frigerio and costumes by Franca Squarciapino.
