A vision at once new and timeless.
When the devil appears and offers Faust a second chance at youth in exchange for his soul, he makes the pact, and then uses his newfound powers to seduce the youthful and innocent Marguerite—with tragic consequences.
One of the most popular operas of the last two centuries, lyricism and legend converge in Gounod’s unforgettable masterpiece. This groundbreaking production is infused with the vision of sculptor and visual artist John Frame, who exhibited at the Portland Art Museum in 2012. After years in the making, Frame’s remarkable creative vision translates to the stage with powerful and deeply evocative sets and costumes, sculpture 3D projections, and more. Faust is a co-production of Lyric Opera of Chicago and Portland Opera.
Sung in French with English text projected above the stage.
