The original vision behind one of the world’s favorite operas
With music that has almost never been heard in 150 years, this version restores Gounod’s original version – with newly discovered scenes and music – in a revelatory take on the classic story about a deal with the devil. American stars Talise Trevigne and Jonathan Johnson star as Marguerite and Faust, with Robert Pomakov as Méphistophélès.
“Whatever intentions damned and saved the characters of “Faust,” [Lileana Blain-Cruz’s production] restored Gounod’s thirst to inspire.”
