Faust

FAUST COMES TO A CROSSROADS AND HEADS IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

Dr. Faust has spent too much of his life studying and not enough living.

When the devil appears and offers Faust a second chance at youth in exchange for his soul, he signs the deed. The devil helps him seduce Marguerite, a young beauty, but when Marguerite becomes pregnant, Faust abandons her. Outcast by the townspeople and cursed by her family, Marguerite goes insane. At some point the heavens and hell both open up. Eventually, justice is served.

This new production of Gounod’s Faust is infused with the vision of sculptor and artist John Frame. As Production Designer, Frame’s powerful and evocative aesthetic translates to the stage with sets and costumes, sculpture, 3D projections, and more.

Faust is a co-production of Lyric Opera of Chicago and Portland Opera.
This production is sponsored by The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation.

Sung in French with English text projected above the stage.

The performance of Faust on June 10 at 2pm will include a live audio-description of the visual and physical events on-stage for patrons who are blind or have low vision.

ENJOY DINNER AT THE SHOW!

The Keller Café will be serving dinner prior to the evening performances of Faust. Make your reservations today!
