When the devil appears and offers Faust a second chance at youth in exchange for his soul, he makes the pact, and then uses his newfound powers to seduce the youthful and innocent Marguerite—with tragic consequences.

One of the most popular operas of the last two centuries, lyricism and legend converge in Gounod’s unforgettable masterpiece. This groundbreaking production is infused with the vision of sculptor and visual artist John Frame, who exhibited at the Portland Art Museum in 2012. After years in the making, Frame’s remarkable creative vision translates to the stage with powerful and deeply evocative sets and costumes, sculpture 3D projections, and more.

Faust is a co-production of Lyric Opera of Chicago and Portland Opera.

This production is sponsored by:
Gregory K and Mary Chomenko Hinckley
H. Pat & Trudy Ritz

Sung in French with English text projected above the stage.

Excerpts of Jonathan Boyd in live performance. Selections are from various opera houses throughout Europe and The Americas.
