Les Contes d’Hoffmann

Client: The Royal Opera House
Duration:
30 sec
Technique: 2.5D After Effects
Synopsis: A short trailer introducing The Royal Opera’s production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann was created in 1980 by the award-winning director John Schlesinger, best known for his work in film (Midnight Cowboy, Sunday Bloody Sunday) and television (Cold Comfort Farm, An Englishman Abroad). Schlesinger’s production sets Hoffman’s tales in the late 19th century, the time in which Offenbach wrote his opera. William Dudley’s magnificent set designs and Maria Björnson’s sumptuous costumes realize to brilliant effect the extravagant flourishes of Hoffmann’s imaginative world.
