Parking is in a garage nearby, getting out is miserable so either park on one of the lower levels or be prepared to wait.

This was spectacular! I knew the story of Faust but never saw the opera. Goldstar ticket was an excellent price and I got to sit in the front row, right in front of the orchestra! Hard to see the subtitles way up near the ceiling, but I didn't...continued

Tenor was excellent, and the supernumeraries were the best I've seen yet.

Description

by Charles Gounod

based on the novel by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sung in French with English surtitles

Gounod’s version of the age-old battle between good and evil is a treasure chest of glorious arias, gorgeous duets, and stirring choruses and ensembles. This production, especially designed to showcase the newly renovated theatre, will take place in contemporary times, giving the powerful story a new and vibrant immediacy.

Faust, jaded and lonely, has sold his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal youth. The innocent Marguerite becomes the pawn in this satanic deal, and she loses everything, including her sanity, as the plot unfolds. This production will offer a new dénouement to the story that will make you experience this opera as you never have before.

Starring: Stefania Dovhan (Marguerite), Bryan Hymel (Faust), Lee Poulis (Valentin), Kristopher Irmiter (Mephistopheles).

Featuring: The Concert Artists of Baltimore Orchestra conducted by James Meena. The production will be conceived and directed by Bernard Uzan in a co-production with Arizona Opera.
