The New Opera Theater will present“Fausta”Charles Gounod after the tragedy of Goethe. Theater director Ekaterina Odegova and playwright Mikhail Muginstein endowed Goethe’s heroes with recognizable Bulgakov features.
“When you listen to Faust, you notice many elements. First of all, a special musical style that has nothing to do with German or even Russian. Gounod’s music is never blurry. It is always extremely clear. No matter how dramatic the plot situation may be, there will be no vulgar theatricality in the sound. The concept of good and evil, the idea of eternal youth are the fundamental ideas of the opera, ”says Jan Latham-Koenig, musical director of the performance, chief conductor of the theater.
