Charles Gounod: Faust
ΜΕΤ Live

Antenna Group and the Athens Concert Hall Organization will present
11 opera productions from the Metropolitan Opera


With Jonas Kaufmann in the title role, René Pape as the devil, and Marina Poplavskaya as Marguerite, Gounod’s classic retelling of the Faust legend couldn’t be better served. Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff updates the story to the first half of the 20th century with a production that won praise in London last season. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts on the heels of his Don Carlo success.
