The Tales of Hoffmann (DVD)
"Helas, mon coeur s'egare encore"
PLACIDO DOMINGO AS "HOFFMAN"
Seeking to exorcise the failure of his current love affair, the poet Hoffman tells the tales of his past three loves - the doll-like Olympia, the high-class courtesan Giulietta, and the ambitious but delicate Antonia - and recalls how each was thwarted by the evil influence of his rival. It is an opera about an artistís hopes and disappointments, in a fantasy world that is both romantic yet grotesque.
Coming soon as part of 'Placido Domingo: My Greatest Roles, Volume 3 - French Opera' containing:
