Opera from Gioacchino Rossini

Duration: 3 hours , Intermissions: 1

Rossini's comic opera, which had its world premiere in 1816, was a work for which he ought to have won several prizes. A prize for speed: "... I wrote the first act in eight days, and the second in another twelve"...
In 1881 a fire broke out at Vienna‘s Ringtheater during a performance of „Hoffmann“, and the orchestral material was later destroyed in a fire at the Parisian Opéra Comique. Was this the devil himself getting revenge for his satirical treatment in Offenbach‘s operetta „Orpheus in the Underworld“? In any case, the devil also plays a central role in „The Tales of Hoffmann“ by thwarting all of the titular hero‘s love affairs. Hoffmann‘s faithful Muse leads him back to the thing which enraptures and comforts him the most: art.
Operetta by Johann Strauß
in German language with English surtitles

This quintessential Viennese operetta deserves to be enjoyed throughout the year, and not just on New Year's Eve. Eisenstein evades a summons to serve a brief prison sentence by accepting Falke's invitation to Prince Orlowsky's party...
Mozart's penultimate opera, and a fairy-tale work that remains popular with young and old alike. The prince Tamino, with the aid of a magic flute and the bird catcher Papageno as his guide, finds the Temple of Isis where Pamina, the woman he loves but has never met, resides. Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, together with Tamino, undergo tests to prove their virtue and constancy and good triumphs over evil through the power of love.
