Jodie Devos is Olympia in Robert Carsen’s Hoffmann revival at Opéra Bastille



Jodie Devos is singing the role of Olympia in Robert Carsen’s Les contes d'Hoffmann revival at Opéra Bastille.


"Could there be a greater homage to the inventor of magic realism in literature than to make him the principal character of an opera in which all resemblance to reality is abolished in favour of an imaginary world with its own rules? In this work by Offenbach, Hoffmann, an ill-fated poet and composer, evokes his past love affairs and leads us through a universe in which dream and reality intermingle. Director Robert Carsen plays masterfully with this play within a play and his spectacular mise en abyme takes us behind the scenes of opera" -Opéra National de Paris


The opera runs from from January 21 to February 14, 2020. The dates in which Devos is performing is as follows:
