By Gounod. Opera Australia. Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House. February 17 – March 13, 2015.
A resounding, standing ovation rang through the Joan Sutherland Theatre as the cast of this new production of Faust returned to the opening night stage for curtain call after curtain call.
Led by Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Méphistophélès, Nicole Car as Marguerite and featuring American tenor Michael Fabiano as the gullible Faust, this a stunning cast in an unforgettable production that is the essence of “Grand Opera”.
