About

Charles-François Gounod’s masterpiece is based on Carré’s play Faust et Marguerite, which in turn is based on Part I of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s dramatic poem Faust, one of the great works of European literature. Gounod’s Faust was once one of the most famous and most performed of all operas and is still cherished today.

This is the first performance at the Salzburg Festival! This stunning production was staged by Reinhard von der Thannen, the supreme cast is led by Piotr Beczała as Faust, Ildar Abdrazakov embodies a seductive and demonic Méphistophélès and Italian soprano Maria Agresta stars as Marguerite, who struggles to resist temptation and gain salvation.

The Philharmonia Chor Wien and the Wiener Philharmoniker perform under the baton of young Argentinian conductor Alejo Pérez. The opera contains much-loved musical highlights including the memorable Soldiers’ Chorus, Méphistophélès’s rowdy “Song of the Golden Calf”, and Marguerite’s Jewel Song with its dazzling coloratura.
