THE FAUST MYTH ON STAGE AND SCREEN
June 18 only
A deal with the devil. An offer he can’t refuse. Countless works of theater and cinema are steeped in the myth of Faust – including this summer’s world premiere opera by Jake Heggie, If I Were You, commissioned by the Merola Opera Program. In If I Were You, the Faust character is a disenchanted young writer and the devil character is a beautiful woman.
