Quotes & Highlights
See excerpts from Faust at the SF Opera website.
One of the most popular operas of all time returns in a passion-filled production. Stefano Secco, praised as a “tremendous actor” and “a find” by London’s The Guardian, portrays the forlorn philosopher who regains his youth by making a dubious deal with the Devil. Patricia Racette, “a dramatic soprano of the utmost subtlety and emotional power” (New York Post), plays the object of his desire. John Relyea, lauded by The New York Times for his “stentorian power [and] wily, seductive lyricism”, is a superbly sinister Méphistophélès. Maurizio Benini, acclaimed for his mastery of this gorgeous score, conducts in a classic production.
