Gounod’s grand opera, Faust, closes the spring season. One of the top 20 operas performed annually, Faust is the powerful tale of a man who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for the return of his youth and the love of a young woman, Marguerite. Beautiful arias and ensemble songs contrast with Faust’s turmoil and ultimate demise.
