Of all the music inspired by the ancient tale of the old philosopher who sells his soul for a second lease of life, Gounod's Goethe-based opera is at once the most grandly spectacular and the most endearingly romantic.

Updating the story's classic setting to a more contemporary world at war, this new co-production with New York's Metropolitan Opera marks the UK opera debut of the Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff. A stunning cast is led by Toby Spence (2008's wide-eyed Candide) and Melody Moore (2009's heart-stopping Mimì in La bohème) as Faust and Marguerite, with Iain Paterson as the devilish Mephistopheles and Benedict Nelson (The Daily Telegraph's 'Best Newcomer' of 2009) as Gretchen's soldier brother Valentin. ENO's Olivier Award-winning Music Director, Edward Gardner conducts.
