O de Cologne

Oper Köln is putting on four operas by local boy Jacques Offenbach this year, the bicentenary of his birth.

They’re doing a shorted version of Tales of Hoffmann for all the family this week.

Plus La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein in June, a revue called Je suis Jacques and the German premiere of ‘Les trois baisers du diable’.

UPDATE: Message from the music director, Gerrit Prießnitz:

Dear Norman, since I am the musical director of “Je suis Jacques” I would like to correct one detail: “Les trois baisers du diable” is not a production but an excerpt of it will be part of “Je suis Jacques”, a new “Offenbachiade” written by the stage director Christian von Götz, that will contain many rarities from Offenbach’s oeuvre
