Les Contes d'Hoffmann (#906H) Duration: 2:56:46 SRND51 TVPG

Magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach's operatic masterpiece, in the Met's wild, kaleidoscopic production. Hibla Gerzmava, Erin Morley and Christine Rice sing the three heroines - each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann's desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score in a Bartlett Sher production.

L'elisir D'amore (#1204H) Duration: 2:26:46 SRND51 TVPG

Pretty Yende debuts a new role at the Met as the feisty Adina, opposite Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his ravishing "Una furtiva lagrima." Bartlett Sher's production is charming, with deft comedic timing, but also emotionally revealing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.
