The original 1952 film staring Moira Shearer
Tales of Hoffmann, based on the Offenbach opera, is one of the later films of the hugely influential partnership between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Made in 1952, it is a ground breaking combination of film with music and dance. Subject to his busy schedule, film producer Andrew Macdonald, who is Pressburger’s grandson, has kindly agreed to introduce the film.
Tales of Hoffmann is presented in conjunction with Mayfield Film.
