Dancing skeletons, drunken rats and a wild, reckless ride to damnation: just some of the unforgettable evocations in Berlioz’s visionary and epic musical retelling of the Faust legend.

Deeply moving and wildly entertaining, La damnation de Faust matches dazzling orchestral brilliance with a heartbreaking story of human love and devilish deception.
