Gounod’s romantic, French grand opera Faust presents us with glorious melodies and sumptuous orchestrations for this dark tale. Unhappy with life, Faust yearns for a return to his youth; makes a pact with the Devil and draws a host of characters into his bargain. Méphistophélès is only too happy to service Faust in his desire to be young and virile. Marguerite, an innocent young girl, her brother Valentin, and Siébel, a young man who is infatuated with Marguerite; all experience ominous consequences in the battle of good vs. evil.
“It’s a privilege to be in the chorus for this show! Highly recommend” Aleks Ritums
