Offenbach's greatest opera, Tales of Hoffman, is the only opera we know of where the hero falls in love with a nineteenth century wind-up doll, a dying singer and a courtesan. Listen as our miserable Hoffman looks for love in all the wrong places for almost three hours. A live broadcast courtesy of the Aspen Music Festival and School this Thursday, August 16, 7:00 pm, exclusively on Aspen Public Radio. Host Chris Mohr will walk you through the story line and share interesting information about the opera.   

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
