At The Opera, Gounod: Faust, June 7, 2014


Faust is a grand opera in five acts by Charles Gounod to a French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré from Carré's play Faust et Marguerite, in turn loosely based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust, Part 1. It debuted at the Théâtre Lyrique on the Boulevard du Temple in Paris on March 19, 1859.

It was Faust with which the Metropolitan Opera in New York City opened for the first time on 22 October 1883. It is the eighth most frequently performed opera there, with 747 performances through the 2011-2012 season.  This classic 1958 recording stars Nicolai Gedda, Boris Christoff, Victoria de los Angeles. Andre Cluytens conducts the Paris National Opera.
