Verismo Opera Company announces our upcoming production of Charles Gounod’s dynamic and tuneful opera Faust. We are a cooperative company that makes opera accessible to the public at reasonable prices.


Dealing with the devil is risky business – lots of details.  Wealth, power, youth, love — Faust wants it all and Mephistopheles lets him have it in return for his immortal soul.  Unfortunately, when you deal with the devil, everyone loses as Faust learns when he seduces the innocent Marguerite, kills her brother and then drives Marguerite to madness. This is a diabolically high price to pay.  The opera by Charles Gounod, based on Goethe’s famous classic, is one of the most popular ever written and is full of melodious, memorable music.
