The Tales of Hoffmann
A Fantastic OperaDVD - 2005
Powell and Pressburger merge film with opera and dance to tell the tale of a poet who dreams of three women who all break his heart. He tells "the three tales of my folly of love"-- in Paris, when he fancied himself in love with Olympia, who turned out to be a life-sized doll; in Venice, when bewitched by a beautiful courtesan; and on a Grecian isle, in love with daughter of a singer and conductor.
