Faust – Gounod (New Production)
Encore Date: Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 7 p.m.
With Jonas Kaufmann in the title role, René Pape as the devil, and Marina Poplavskaya as Marguerite, Gounod's classic retelling of the Faust legend couldn't be better served. Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff updates the story to the first half of the 20th century with a production that won praise in London last season. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts on the heels of his Don Carlo success. (4 hours 20 minutes, 2 intermissions)
