Opéra Louisiane presents a season finale production of Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann coming Spring 2022 at the Manship Theatre at Shaw Center for the Arts. Tenor Frederick Ballentine, who last season made his debut in the Metropolitan Opera’s historic production of Porgy and Bess, will appear in the title role of the poet E.T.A. Hoffmann. Ballentine is joined by Cuban-Puerto Rican soprano Megan Barrera as the four heroines and local favorite Dennis Jesse commands the roles of the four villains. Sung in French with English translation above the stage, The Tales of Hoffmann boasts beautiful melodies that audiences love and recognize. The Tales of Hoffmann is a dreamlike story of a poet’s search for illusive love through time. Baton Rouge native Margaret Jumonville, makes her directorial debut at Opéra Louisiane for Hoffmann.
