Set in the fantastical science fiction universe of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, David Scott Marley’s sparkling English adaptation of The Tales of Hoffmann returns to Berkeley Opera. Populating this pre-electric industrial “steampunk” world is the tortured poet Hoffmann telling stories of his past loves, taking flights of fancy powered by steam, elaborate clockworks and magic where the science leaves off.
Adam Flowers is the tortured poet Hoffmann, Angela Cadelago the objects of his affection, Paul Murray his villainous rival and Nora Martin his devoted friend and muse.
English adaptation by David Scott Marley
