SF opera inspired by fantastic tales of E. T. A. Hoffmann. Famous music played by excellent soloists. Fantastic scenography of Miljen Kreka Kljakovi? and luxurious costumes designed by Milanka Berberovi? in futuristic directing of Dejan Miladinovi? and under conducting of Aleksandar Spasi?. The writer Hoffmann narrates about his three unhappy loves while draining »life« in an apocalyptic hangout. Olympia, his first love, is a cyborg, a creation of a greedy scientist; Antonia is an overdosed rock star, and Giulietta a prostitute-transvestite. The answer to the question how much love is »the devil’s« work and how much an illusion can be found in this fantastic performance, in the duration of two hours and 30 minutes and is played in French, with the subtitles in Serbian.
