BERLIOZ The Damnation of Faust
Charles Dutoit is renowned as a supreme interpreter of Berlioz' epic masterpiece, which was described by the composer as a 'légende dramatique'. Berlioz became transfixed by Goethe's version of the Faust story, declaring: 'I could not put it down. I read it incessantly, at meals, in the theatre, in the street.' The tale that so gripped Berlioz is illuminated by his uniquely beautiful music, full of exquisite orchestral colours and fluid vocal writing. Charles Dutoit is joined for this concert performance by a truly stellar cast, each celebrated for their outstanding expressive powers. Unmissable.
