LA Opera: “The Tales of Hoffmann”
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
135 N. Grand Ave.
Los Angeles, CA, 90012

It’s the last day to see Vittorio Grigolo and the LA Opera take on Offenbach’s final masterpiece, “The Tales of Hoffmann.” Poet E.T.A. Hoffmann is urged by his boozing buddies to recount the women he has loved and lost, and obliges. As he begins recollecting, the plot is set into motion, and we meet each fascinating, half-remembered woman. Powerhouse Placido Domingo conducts the iconic, mood-setting score.
