E. T. A. Hoffmann: In the Realm of Dreams

Literary forays through art and life, night and day, genius and madness: in ten stages, passionate readers – among them actress Elisabeth Orth – and devoted musicians walk in the footsteps of E. T. A. Hoffmann. In his infinitely »fantastic« cosmos we meet eccentric artists such as Hoffmann's alter ego, the Kapellmeister Kreisler, the almost philistine educated Kater Murr, a fairytale-like Mouse King, the sinister advocate Coppelius and a distinguished damsel with detective instincts. Also guests in the universe of the literary-musical double talent: the Romantics Johannes Brahms and Robert Schumann as well as the composers Bach, Beethoven and Mozart, whom Hoffmann admired. Their music accompanies us on our journey into Hoffmann's fascinating world, which is sometimes uncanny, sometimes grotesque, sometimes satirical.
