BUTLER OPERA CENTER PRESENTS
TALES OF HOFFMANN
April 14 - April 23 | McCullough Theater
Follow the love-drunk poet E.T.A. Hoffmann, as he finds himself on a journey through his own fated love stories. Guided by his muse disguised as confidant Nicklausse, Hoffmann becomes the protagonist pursuing the love of women he has already written about: a mechanical doll, a critically ill opera singer, and a Venetian courtesan. Offenbach’s evocative score — the pinnacle of 19th-century French opera — weaves unforgettable melodies along the way. Will Hoffmann find love with real-life opera singer Stella? Or will he again find himself using personal heartbreak to fuel his art?

The Butler Opera Center ranks among the top opera programs in the United States. Under the direction of Tamara Sanikidze, the program prepares emerging vocalists, vocal coaches and opera stage directors for careers in music. Each year, while pursuing academic classes, graduate students participate in at least three fully-produced mainstage operas accompanied by a full orchestra. With a curriculum based in both the traditional operatic repertory and progressive contemporary works, the program attracts students and faculty from a diverse background. Enrollment for each degree is limited to ensure personalized, intensive performance and training opportunities for each student.
