Description

Jonas Kaufmann's 'tender lyricism' and 'fearless high notes' created a 'vocally splendid Faust' in Des McAnuff's 'theatrically daring' 2011 production for the Met (The New York Times). Also including the 'outstanding' René Pape (New York Daily News) and the 'daring' Marina Poplavskaya (Financial Times) and supported with 'buoyancy and French flair' by star conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Wall Street Journal), McAnuff's atomic-age vision of Gounod's melodrama entertains and compels.
