GOUNOD’S FAUST - June 11, 2010 - San Francisco War Memorial Opera House


Goethe’s tale of heaven and hell provides a great opportunity for Patricia Racette’s voice.  She was excellent.  I think Relyea’s Méphisophélès was better than Secco’s Faust, but both were well done.  I’ve always been a fan of Goethe’s botany but never had heard the opera before.

The photo was on Opera Warhorses (www.operawarhorses.com) but I assume it is from the San Francisco Opera web site.
