HECTOR BERLIOZ The Damnation of Faust


We’ve all had Berlioz’s experience with a good book. “I couldn’t put it down. I read it at meals, in the street.” Berlioz was so intrigued by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s book that he transformed it into a concert opera, The Damnation of Faust. It is among Stéphane Denève’s favorite works, and he brings a dream cast of vocalists to tell its story of love, death, and the devil.
