1ST-18TH FEBRUARY 2018
A new production, sung in french with English and French subtitles takes place from the 1st-18th February 2018. The opera Faust, in 5 acts by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré. In 1838, Goethe’s Faust did not leave Charles Gounod. The myth has been obsessing him since his tender youth. But it is above all Marguerite that interests him, this ambiguous girl, frivolous, seduced and abandoned, infanticide. The book has lost its philosophical dimension, but still has great charm and remains an icon of French opera.
WHEN: 1st-19th February 2018 at 7.30pm.
WHERE: Opéra des Nations, 40 avenue de France, 1202 Genève.
COST: 25CHF – 199CHF.
