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 "is worth selling one’s soul for the musical performance alone," in the words of our Operavore blogger Olivia Giovetti.

Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff updates the story to the first half of the 20th century with a production that debuted in London last season. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts on the heels of his recent Don Carlo success.
