Faust by Charles Gounod
After a lifetime of study in which he thinks he has learned absolutely nothing, what does our Dr Faust long for above all else? To be young again! (Many of us already know or will come to know that feeling!) He calls for supernatural help and, lo and behold, who should turn up at his door but Mephistopheles, the Devil himself. And he offers Faust a deal he cannot refuse.
Charles Gounod’s greatest tragicomedy is full of marvellous tunes, with plenty of laughs – and a quite chilling conclusion.
