The Tales of Hoffmann San Francisco

The Tales of Hoffmann is based on a quirky play by writers Jules Barbier, who wrote the opera's libretto, and Michel Carre. The story takes the real-life German poet, E.T.A. Hoffmann, and makes him a character in some of his own, vivid stories. Jacques Offenbach's operatic adaptation follows the same scheme, putting the hapless Hoffmann in three colorful stories of failed love. Offenbach's creation is one of the grandest and most evocative of all 19th-century French operas, achieving a combination of emotional depth and musical brilliance that only the finest opera composers ever penned.

During his lifetime, Jacques Offenbach became world-renowned as the composer of operettas, often light comedies boasting scores of catchy tunes that audiences enjoyed but perhaps never truly admired. When Jacques Offenbach began writing The Tales of Hoffmann in 1877, he hoped the opera would elevate his reputation to a more esteemed level. It did exactly that, but unfortunately, the composer never lived to see it. Just like the title character, what Offenbach sought was just out of reach, but with San Francisco War Memorial Opera House tickets from StubHub, you can help carry on his legacy and see The Tales of Hoffmann live!
