Dissatisfied with his life in science, Faust sells his soul to the devil to regain his youth, and find joy again in the passing moment. Under the devil’s influence, the lovely Marguerite falls for Faust, and is irredeemably corrupted, to Faust’s ultimate horror. This chamber version of Gounod’s opera reduces it to the scale of Goethe’s original Urfaust. Sung in French with English supertitles. Performed with chamber ensemble.
