“I shall enchant your eyes and ears…” What would you trade for your wildest dreams? Young Faust makes the deadliest possible bargain – but he has one **** of a time finding out the price. half grand opera, half roofraising choral-orchestral spectacular, Berlioz’s ground-breaking The Damnation of Faust caused a scandal in 1846, and with its supernatural story and thumping good melodies, it’s one of romantic music’s most thrillingly sinful treats. Join John Nelson, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and an all-star cast for a night when the Devil really does have all the best tunes.
