ARTWORK BY SUE OVERTON

"... a devilishly good time."

Broadway World

How far would you go to attain your dreams? A deal with the devil goes awry in Faust, Gounod’s captivating tragedy. The aging Faust makes a pact with Méphistophélès to exchange his soul for Earth’s mortal pleasures. With his youth restored, Faust woos the lovely Marguerite, but his troubles are far from over. Seduced to riches and power, Faust soon realizes his salvation is tragically bound to others, including those he loves most. From Marguerite’s celebrated “Jewel Song” to the beloved “Soldiers’ Chorus,” Gounod’s searing and sumptuous score propels Goethe’s tale of redemption and damnation into a dizzying dance with the devil that is impossible to forget. Sung in French with English subtitles.
