Faust

Opera in 5 acts by Charles Gounod
Libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré based on the legent and on Goethe's Faust. First performed at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris on 19 March 1859.

New production

Sung in French with English and French surtitles

From 1838, Goethe’s Faust never left Gounoud’s side. The simple theme, as old as time itself, was based on a timeless legend, one that obsessed him from an early age. But above all, he was interested in Marguerite: a young, ambiguous, frivolous woman, seduced and abandoned, who commits infanticide. The work has lost its philosophical dimension, but retains a great deal of charm. It remains an icon of French opera.
