Guildford Opera present Gounod’s Faust

Guildford Opera  perform a fully staged production of Gounod’s opera Faust,  in English , accompanied by a chamber orchestra at the Electric Theatre on 22, 24-25 November 2023. Tickets with a special group reduction on Wednesday Nov 22  – 4 tickets for 3.

Based on Goethe’s classic German legend, the story remains timeless in its themes: the urge to remain young and desirable, the conflict between worldliness and spirituality, the repercussions of an unwanted pregnancy and the dilemmas posed by our choices.

Gounod’s music is a feast of well-known arias including the Jewel Song, the Golden Calf and the Soldiers’ Chorus.  Faust combines exuberant drama, emotional poignancy and an irresistible whiff of decadence.
