Midland Opera present

The Tales of Hoffmann

by Jacques Offenbach

Wed 3rd to Sat 6th November at 7.30pm in The Main House

Following last year's spectacular production of Verdi's Macbeth, Midland Opera presents a unique take on Offenbach's fantastical opera 'The Tales of Hoffmann'.

Hoffmann's struggle with love, truth and his own demons take shape in memorable way with conceptual setting and glorious singing of Offenbach's tuneful score. Direction is by Andrew Potter of Birmingham School of Acting, whilst the players of the Queens Park Sinfonia play from specially-commissioned orchestral reduction, conducted by Musical Director, Phil-Ypres Smith.

Expect the unexpected!

Tickets: £12.50 & 14.50. Student Concession: £6.00
Parking Vouchers for orders over 4 available on request before October 15th.
