Tales of Hoffmann

Jacques Offenbach's The Tales of Hoffmann is four narratives in one. It initially seemed far too complex to become a bracelet...

Over time, I got more familiar with this beloved set of stories and was actually able to see a production of The Tales of Hoffmann. This helped my understanding of the piece. Knowing that the villain is often played by the same person and learning that the women are all aspects of a whole, led me to think there might be some pattern to such a bracelet and not just a disjointed set of “stories”.
