I love LES CONTES D'HOFFMANN -- one of my all-time favorite operas, and I'm lucky to have seen it in three different productions. It contains one of my favorite operatic ensembles:

This is a rather unfortunate example as, while it makes a great scene, it was not by Offenbach! It was created by later editors of the opera using existing music and first appeared in a production of Hoffman in 1904 in Monte Carlo.
