By Charles Gounod
A new production by Grand Théâtre de Genève, performed at the Opéra des Nations
From 1838, Goethe’s Faust never left Gounod’s side. The simple theme, as old as time itself, was based on a timeless legend, one that obsessed him from an early age. But above all, he was interested in Marguerite: a young, ambiguous, frivolous woman, seduced and abandoned, who commits infanticide. The work has lost its philosophical dimension, but retains a great deal of charm. It remains an icon of French opera.
