Gounod
Faust

Richard Leech in the title role creates a passionate and vivid portrait of the world-weary man who sells his soul to the devil for another chance at life and love—only to discover that true love isn’t what he imagined it would be. The extraordinary Renée Fleming is Marguerite, the beautiful, innocent woman Faust ruins, and Dwayne Croft is Valentin, the brother whose death she inadvertently causes. Pulling all the strings behind the scenes and enjoying every minute of it is the incomparable Samuel Ramey as Méphistophélès.
