Opera by Charles Gounod in five acts

Stage director Aiks Karapetjans

Doctor Faust is tormented by the feeling he’s wasted his life. The mysterious Mephistopheles promises to make all of the aging scientist’s wishes come true - in exchange for Faust’s soul . . . Charles Gounod’s opera, which was inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s famous tragedy, saw its world premier in Paris in 1859. Today, director Aik Karapetian’s has put together a new production in the late-gothic aesthetic, also employing silent movie techniques in the style of German expressionism. “But that doesn’t mean that the production will be hopelessly grave”, Karapetian says of his vision.
