FAUST'S LEGENDARY SALE OF HIS SOUL
Our orchestra and chorus take a walk on the dark side with music rooted in the tale of Johann Faust's bargain with Satan. We invite you to come along for Franz Liszt's haunting Mephisto Waltz 1 and Waltz 2 and five opera selections: Salve Regina! from Arrigo Boito's Mefistofele and the Angel Chorus, Kermesse Chorus, Soldiers' Chorus, and Waltz Chorus from Charles Gounod's Faust. Rounding out the concert are ominous musical stories of other temptations: The Witches' Chorus from Giuseppe Verdi's opera Macbeth and the fourth and fifth movements of Hector Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique. Bonus: Symphony violist Darcy Lewis shares insights into the music at the start of the concert.
