What would you do to be younger? Unhappy with his life, Faust makes a pact with the Devil that draws a host of other characters into his bargain. Marguerite, an innocent young girl, her brother Valentin, and Siébel, a young man who is infatuated with Marguerite: all are collateral damage as Faust jousts with the Devil. Gounod gave us glorious melodies and sumptuous orchestrations for this dark tale.
