12/10/11 Faust – Gounod 1:00

By WBJC Programming | Posted in WBJC Programs | Comments Off on 12/10/11 Faust – Gounod 1:00

Conductor: Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Approximate running time 3 hrs. 40 min.

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.


Faus: Jonas Kaufmann
