    Would you strike a deal with the devil? Faust, an aging scholar, wants another chance at youth and love, and forges a malevolent pact with Méphistophélès to seduce the beautiful and innocent Marguerite. What follows is a struggle between good and evil that is destined for tragedy as only great opera can tell it. Abounding with Gounod’s unforgettable melodies, this new production by Bernard Uzan was a “triumph” at its Arizona premiere.
    Don’t miss the Austin debut of bass-baritone Jamie Offenbach in the role of Méphistophélès. Offenbach has been praised as “made for the part.”

    English subtitles available.
