Tales of Hoffmann

A glorious restoration with previously unseen footage offers breathtaking testimony of the dazzling visual imagination and boundless artistic daring of Powell and Pressburger. The Oscar-nominated adaptation of Offenbach’s opera is a feverish swirl of colour and intense emotion as the poet Hoffmann recalls the three great loves of his life and how unbearable sadness inspires the most sublime artistry. 

+ Introduction from WNO Dramaturg Sophie Rashbrook at both screenings.
