Les Contes d’Hoffmann will prima at the Opera National de Paris Bastille venue on the evening of September 7th for a run of ten performances. What is of most interest to COMMANDOpera is the appearance of Miss Kate Aldrich as Nicklausse. Mr. Stefano Secco is Hoffmann, Miss Jane Archibald is Olympia, Miss Sophie Koch is Giulietta, and Miss Anna Maria Martinez as Antonia. Mr. Tomas Netopil is on the podium of this Robert Carson production. Mr. Secco is greatly favoured in Paris, and COMMANDOpera would suggest if you are to open the season at this theatre, one had better own an extraordinary vocal instrument. Or be good friends with the management of the theatre.
