Experience the ninth season of the Metropolitan Opera's Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD in select cinemas nationwide. The broadcast of Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann will be presented live on Saturday, January 31 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 9:55 a.m. PT.
The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the title role of the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer in the Met's kaleidoscopic production of Offenbach's energetic, operatic masterpiece. Hibla Gerzmava, Erin Morley and Christine Rice sing the three heroines-each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann's desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score.
