“La Damnation de Faust” with Simon Rattle, Joyce DiDonato and Charles Castronovo

La Damnation de Faust is less about the philosophical dimension of the material than about passion, conflicts, and of course the protagonist’s dramatic damnation. With this work, the magician of sound Hector Berlioz created an evocative, imaginary opera, interpreted in our concert by Simon Rattle and two outstanding American singers: Joyce DiDonato as Marguerite and Charles Castronovo as Faust. The role of Mephisto is sung by Ludovic Tézier.
