The Tales of Hoffmann

The Tales of Hoffmann

by William Germano
     
 

The Tales of Hoffmann (1951) is a unique and important film, both in the history of British cinema and in the history of interdisciplinary art-making. It is the first full-throttle presentation of an opera on screen: a Technicolor exploration of romance, fantasy, and failure, more danced than sung, that reinvents the "total work of art."See more details below
