In despair, the aging and regretful scholar Faust makes a deal with the devil for an ill-fated chance at youth, vitality and love. Exciting theatre director Lileana Blain-Cruz makes her company debut, crafting a fascinating new production of Faust that reimagines the classic, hedonistic tale. Conductor Steven White (Cosí fan tutte, 2017) returns to Opera Omaha to lead the Omaha Symphony in this world stage premiere of a new performance edition, featuring music from the opera that hasn’t been heard in over 150 years.
This performance contains adult content and scenes that depict infanticide and hedonistic activity. Parental guidance is advised.
