Faust

Charles Gounod

  • “…A devilishly inventive and musically rewarding production of Gounod’s masterpiece… [Stage Director] James Marvel’s concept of Méphistophélès was brilliantly tailored to the talents of Joshua Winograde, who mocked, coaxed and manipulated Faust and company with great flair, ease and a rock-solid resonant bass-baritone reminding all of us that, in the end, the devil will have his due. Shu-Ying Li’s Marguérite was vocally and dramatically appealing, including some ravishing piano singing.”
