La date du 1er mars 2018 à 20h rentre dans le cadre de la programmation de la saison 17-18 de l'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
This oratorio, which was nearly 10 years in the making, was a gift from Robert Schumann to his wife Clara. In it, he offers the world his luminous lyricism and his religious, philosophical and existential questions. He suggests the fight between good and evil, and presents a character in search of peace and serenity. It is a work to discover or rediscover, completing the portrait of Faust, celebrated this season.
