5.0 out of 5 stars At last - the authentic version, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the critical version created by Jean-Christoph Keck, first performed in Lausanne on 2003.
It is based on original discovered Offenbach manuscripts, and it is perhaps the closest we shall ever get to the 'real' LES CONTES D'HOFFMANN.
This version was definitely unknown to performers (and audience) before the 21st century, and the background of its reconstruction is descriced in the film "The Lost Manuscript", recently published in this DVD :

And it is a wonderful performance.
