Enjoy magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo in the title role of Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece. Magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece, in the Met’s wild, kaleidoscopic production. Hibla Gerzmava, Erin Morley and Christine Rice sing the three heroines — each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann’s desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score in a Bartlett Sher production. GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET: Les Contes d’Hoffmann airs Sunday, May 10, 2015 at 12 noon on WXXI-TV.
