About

The Royal Opera House presents a lavish production of Faust, set in a decadent version of 1870's Paris.

Growing tired of life and his interminable quest for further knowledge, the elderly Faust gravely contemplates taking his own life to escape the boredom. His life changes drastically when he encounters the sinister Mephistopheles, who offers him a deal that sounds too good to be true. In exchange for Faust’s soul, Mephistopheles offers any and all hedonistic pleasures of his choosing. But is there a catch in this supernatural offer?

Once one of the most famous and performed opera at the Royal Opera House, Charles-Francois Gounod’s work is a startling tale of romance, temptation and the battle of good against evil. David McVicar’s production sets the action in Paris and features all the much-loved musical highlights, including the Soldiers’ Chorus and Song of the Golden Calf.
