Seeking to exorcise the failure of his current love affair, the poet Hoffmann tells the tales of his three past loves: the doll-like Olympia, the high-class courtesan Giulietta, and the ambitious but delicate Antonia, and recalls how each was thwarted by the evil influence of his rival.
In this production by the distinguished film director, John Schlesinger, Offenbach's nightmare world is brought to life. The all-star cast is headed by Placido Domingo in his prime as Hoffmann.
