The MET: Live in HD presents Gounod’s Faust Saturday, December 10 at 12:55 p.m. ET/ 9:55 a.m. PT

Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff’s new staging of Faust sets the quintessential tale of a man’s bargain with the devil in the first half of the 20th century.
Jonas Kaufmann sings the title role for the first time at the Met, opposite Marina Poplavskaya as Marguerite, the woman he loves and destroys, and René Pape as the devil himself, Méphistophélès.
Russell Braun sings Marguerite’s brother, the soldier Valentin, and Michèle Losier is the lovesick student Siébel.
Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who also led the HD transmissions of Don Carlo and Carmen, conducts.
Joyce DiDonato, star of the Met’s upcoming world premiere The Enchanted Island, hosts the transmission.

Press Quotes

“Exceptional work by a fine cast of singing actors led by tenor Jonas Kaufmann, soprano Marina Poplavskaya and bass René Pape…their performances, sharply directed by Des McAnuff, guaranteed that Gounod’s opera came across as serious and even gripping theater. And rarely has the score sounded more captivating than in the rhapsodic account by the Met orchestra under the guidance of the young conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin.”—Associated Press

“Mr. Kaufmann, a Met superstar, was a handsome, vocally splendid Faust. He sang the pensive and romantic passages with veiled dusky colorings and tender lyricism, and unleashed pent-up power in full-bodied phrases, capped by fearless high notes.”
–The New York Times
