The Tales of Hoffmann feature apparitions, mechanical dolls, troubled love stories and melancholy – but don’t worry, the mood is strictly buffo! Offenbach’s masterpiece has a long and complicated history and many variants, so the interpretation at the Kraków Opera is a perfect opportunity for its director Michał Znaniecki to create his very own vision, working alongside the conductor Tomasz Tokarczyk. There will be dazzling arias (Olympia performs a veritable coloratura obstacle course!) and the popular barcarolle, but the greatest challenge comes from bringing it all into a coherent whole.

Direction, costumes: Michał Znaniecki
Musical direction: Tomasz Tokarczyk

Premiere: 9 June 2017
