The Lensic and Santa Fe Opera present Faust, with tenor superstar Jonas Kaufmann singing the title role for the first time at the Met.
With Jonas Kaufmann in the title role, René Pape as the devil, and Marina Poplavskaya as Marguerite,
Gounod’s classic retelling of the Faust legend couldn’t be better served. Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff updates the story to the first half of the 20th century with a production that won praise in London last season.
The traditional setting for Faust is 16th-century Germany, a time when alchemists and philosophers were familiar characters in real life. Des McAnuff’s new Met production places the action in the first half of the 20th century.
