Synopsis
Disillusioned with life, the aged philosopher Faust calls upon Satan to help him. The devil Méphistophélès appears and strikes a bargain with the philosopher: he will give him youth and the love of the beautiful Marguerite, if Faust will hand over his soul.
Gounod's most popular opera returns in David McVicar's stunning Parisian production, with singers includ-ing Michael Fabiano, Diana Damrau and Erwin Schrott. This production draws insightful parallels between Faust and Gounod, a composer torn between piety and worldly and romantic success. The variety of set-tings mirrors the variety in Gounod's score, highlights of which include Méphistophélès's demonic aria 'Le veau d'or', Marguerite's dazzling coloratura Jewel Song, the Act IV Soldiers' Chorus and Act V's impas-sioned trio as Marguerite struggles to achieve salvation.
