An Aria A Day #104

‘Scintille, diamant’
from Les contes d’Hoffmann
by Jacques Offenbach
Accompaniment arranged and produced by Narelle French

20th August, 2020

Watched over by his cat ‘Little Grey’, Sam Hartley performs Offenbach’s devilish Diamond aria, ‘Scintille, diamant’ from ‘Les contes d’Hoffmann’.

In 2009, a decade after making his debut with the company, Sam participated in the Opera Queensland Young and Developing Artist Program performing more than 40 times with the company that year alone.

Did you know…? Like Beethoven, composer Offenbach only wrote one opera. ‘Le contes d’Hoffmann’ is considered his only ‘serious’ work among an ouevre of some 105 other works including operettas, opéra comiques and opéra bouffe.
