Drig, drig, drig.... (Choeur des Étudiants) from 'The Tales of Hofman' - Offenbach

Drig, drig, drig.... (Choeur des Étudiants) from 'The Tales of Hofman' - Offenbach

arr. Jos van de Braak for choir and band

For Male Choir and concert band.

At the end of his life Offenbach composed his opera 'Les contes d´Hoffman', but unfortunately he was not able to finish it. The plot tells the story of the poet Hoffmann telling three of his amorous adventures, every time ending with a refusal of his proposing. The chorus Drig, drig ,drig ... is sung in the first act of the opera. The scene is Luther's tavern in Nurnberg where students are waiting for Hoffmann; the spirits of wine and beer begin their revels. The Muse of the poet Hoffmann declares that Hoffmann must choose between her and his love for Stella, an opera singer. Students crowd into the tavern, and encourage him to drink and sing them a song.
