Royal Opera House: Faust
David McVicar's production of Gounod's opera, filmed live and screened in cinemas worldwide as part of the ROH's 2018/2019 season of productions.
"Disillusioned with life, the aged philosopher Faust calls upon Satan to help him. The devil Méphistophélès appears and strikes a bargain with the philosopher: he will give him youth and the love of the beautiful Marguerite, if Faust will hand over his soul. Faust agrees, and Méphistophélès arranges matters so that Marguerite loses interest in her suitor Siébel and becomes infatuated with Faust." (Royal Opera House)
