Why See Opera Omaha - Faust?
An unlikely associate
What would make you make a deal with the devil? Would the promise of youth and fortune sway you as it does the scholar Faust? Discover the price he pays in Gounod's thrilling opera, staged in a new production by Omaha Opera. Resurrecting his earliest versions, expect to be surprised by long-forgotten music first penned over 150 years ago as this devilish new Faust makes its way to you!
First performed in Paris in 1859, Faust is a powerhouse grand opera, told in 5 parts and based upon Goethe's book. The idea of a Faustian pact has been passed down through the decades, based on the unlucky deal with the devil made by the titular character.
Once the bargain is stuck, Doctor Faust finds himself a handsome young gentleman once again, ready to experience the hedonism and seduction he feels he has missed out on. As bait, Mephistopheles places the innocent Marguerite in his way. Once debauched by the infernal pair, she must find a way to deliver herself from temptation and save her soul...
