To complement the revival of Gounod's Faust on the main stage, the Linbury Studio Theatre hosts two contemporary retellings of Goethe's classic legend, Luke Bedford's Through His Teeth, and Matthew Herbert's The Crackle.
Through His Teeth is the second opera from Luke Bedford, widely acknowledged as one of the finest composers of his generation. Bedford collaborates with Scottish playwright David Harrower, acclaimed for his translations of Gogol's The Government Inspector (Young Vic) and Chekhov's Ivanov (National Theatre), in a chilling exploration of the frailty of trust.
