The Damnation Of Faust.


  • Berlioz The Damnation of Faust 125′

What would you trade for your wildest dreams? Young Faust makes the deadliest possible bargain – but he has one hell of a time finding out the price. Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust caused a scandal in 1846, and it’s still one of romantic music’s most fabulously sinful treats. Join Edward Gardner and an all-star cast for a night when the Devil really does have all the best tunes. 

Sung in French with English surtitles.

There will be one interval, after Part 2.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: Members of the CBSO Chorus talk about preparing and performing Berlioz’s dramatic masterpiece The Damnation of Faust.
