Opéra de Marseille # Saison 2017/18

Faust | Charles Gounod

1859-2019: this new production of Faust is an opportunity to celebrate 160 years of the most famous french directory partition and whose success enabled him to never leave the poster of the lyric theatre.
Book on the quest for eternal youth, Faust is probably the literary myth, having been the most suitable music. The most famous version remains the one Charles Gounod composed in 1859 for the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris. At the end of the century, the work will be heard nearly 3,000 times in the French capital; proof of its undeniable public success.
This Faust with french accents refocuses the plot on the impossible relationship between Marguerite and Faust. The first ends up killing the illegitimate child born of his union with the one who has agreed to make a pact with the devil for eternal youth.
Gounod here offers an immense fresco panting, rich in challenges and twists. He adorned his characters of air among the best known of all the french opera repertoire. Bianca Castafiore can attest; She who sang on the albums of Hergé the famous 'Air of the jewels' of Marguerite.
