Performed in French with English Supertitles
Secluded in his study at dawn, the old philosopher Faust contemplates the meaning of life. Determined to bring his own to an end, he defiantly challenges both God and the Devil. Mephistopheles magically appears with a tempting offer: eternal youth and the love of the beautiful Marguerite, in exchange for only one thing–Faust's soul! Overcome by the vision of her loveliness, Faust agrees to the fantastic bargain, and is transformed into a young and ardent man who pursues love and happiness with the Devil's eager help. The tragic end of Faust and Marguerite's love and the ultimate triumph of good over evil create one of the most sublime finales in all of opera.
