YAH17 The Tales of Hoffmann

This stunning 4K restoration contains previously unseen footage and is sure to astonish audiences on its return to the big screen. Powell and Pressburger’s dazzling take on Jacques Offenbach’s 1881 opera brings together some of the greatest film, music and dance talents of the period.

During the intermission of a ballet in Nurnberg, audience members retire to a nearby tavern where Hoffman (Robert Rounseville) begins to tell the stories of his three lovers; each memory portrayed as a vibrant fantasia. So compelling are they that his audience decides to skip the rest of the ballet to hear him out. The Tales of Hoffmann is a highly entertaining mix of ballet and opera, where Moira Shearer dances her legs off while everybody else sings their hearts out. Screening in the Young at Heart Film Festival 2017.
