    I hope I can view the live BBC performance of Faust on April 22 and also that I can download it to my favorites. Since I live in the USA, I am fearful that I can't get it.

      Hi Sarah

      I believe that it will be available internationally, but the BBC will be able to confirm.

      Best wishes
