Set in the French Antilles, this one-act musical from the creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Learn More

A terrific production.
Creative sets and imaginative costumes highlighted the poet's (Hoffmann's) drunken fantasies.
Vocally secure and expressive singing by all.
The characters looked their parts and acted convincingly. I hate to mention anyone in particular because of lack of space and do not want to leave anyone out. I attended performances at the Met in NY and at SFOpera this month. In many ways this show was a greater success and much more enjoyable. I saw Hoffmann in Paris some years ago. West Bay Opera's was a far better show!
Outstanding achievement. Bravo!
About the Ticket Supplier: West Bay Opera
Performing both the familiar and the adventurous, West Bay Opera seeks to please and challenge singers and audiences with three productions per season, one each in October, February, and May. The repertoire includes standard popular works, lesser-known operas and operettas, and occasionally operas by modern composers. Some of West Bay Opera’s greatest successes result from undertaking formidable artistic challenges. Past accomplishments include Bellini’s rarely-performed Norma, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in the original Russian, and Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer. The principal consideration is always to give talented young opera singers an opportunity to perform challenging roles and, in turn, to give audiences the pleasure of hearing these singers on their way to fame.
