Chicago Stage Review - Highly Recommended

"...By turns hilarious, poignant and triumphant, Lyricís The Tales of Hoffmann is a musical narrative replete with lush settings, glittering costumes, compelling music and inspired singing and acting. As it embarks on a new and hopefully ground-breaking era, Lyric Opera of Chicago does itself and our city proud with this beautiful world-class production of an under-performed gem, a fitting harbinger of artistic adventures yet to come."

"... And the production at the Lyric is beautiful. The sets are properly grandiose for opera, at once simple, expansive, and intricate; in a word, brilliant. The costumes are impeccable, the lighting design really excellent. All of the performers are marvelous, the pit is spot-on. Itís simply a wonderful experience."

"...My joy, my despair, my rage are bottled up pressurized complications. Opera pops the cork! The Tales of Hoffman is a champagne soaked romantic comedy. The poet within all of us will fall in love with falling in love Hoffmann style!"
