Gounod: Faust Blu-ray (The Royal Opera) 2019

Notify me when this product is available:

Gounod’s masterpiece is given the grandest of Royal Opera stagings in David McVicar’s richly layered and theatrically exuberant production, with the drama moved to Second Empire Paris, spectacular sets and costumes, and extensive dance. Michael Fabiano as a seductively witty Faust, Erwin Schrott as a devilish Méphistophélès and Irina Lungu as a passionate Marguerite are joined by the Royal Opera Chorus and a cast of Royal Opera favourites. Dan Ettinger conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in Gounod’s gloriously tuneful score.

"Schrott and Fabiano are devilishly good together." The Guardian
"...Schrott's swaggering Méphistophélès had a tone of whip-cracking authority which blended perfectly with Michael Fabiano's ringingly full tenor as Faust." The Independent
"... a powerful production..." Financial Times
