Faust – Royal Opera Live

  • Starring: The Royal Opera
  • Running time: 225 minutes

EXPERIENCE THE DECADENCE AND ELEGANCE OF 1870S PARIS IN DAVID MCVICAR'S SPECTACULAR PRODUCTION OF GOUNOD'S BEST LOVED OPERA.

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod's opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Mephistopheles. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle - the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera's most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.
