This production of Gounod’s opera Faust is the result of an exchange with the Frankfurt Opera House where it had its première in 2005. The title role is sung by Johan Weigel who most recently performed in the successful production of Arabella, which was also directed by Christof Loy. Mephistopheles is played by Anders Lorentzson and Margareta by Malin Byström, who is in the middle of her international career.
The stage design shows clearly how deeply Faust longs to regain his youth. As always, Christof Loy directs with a personal style that creates tension in every scene.
