Based on Goethe’s play, Gounod’s opera asks if the freedom of youth is worth an eternity in hell. It is to the aging Faust, who makes a pact with Méphistophélès to exchange his soul for another chance for youth and love. With his youth restored, Faust woos the lovely Marguerite; but Faust soon realizes his salvation is tragically bound to others, including those he loves most.
Gounod’s popular masterpiece explodes with memorable music, arias, trios and gripping scenes which will amaze as only a live performance can.
