4:00 PM | LENSIC

The legend of Faust has been retold in countless ways over the centuries and while five versions are known to exist, Faust always sells his soul to the Devil for unlimited knowledge and a lifetime of worldly pleasure! Under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, with choral direction by Carmen Flórez-Mansi, Hector Berlioz’ légende dramatique, La Damnation de Faust, is not to be missed! One of Berlioz’ most striking works, La Damnation de Faust was inspired by the composer’s reading of the first translation of Göethe’s Faust into French. Likely to sell out in advance, this grande season finale will showcase the full Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus plus an all-star cast of four seasoned professionals and familiar faces from the opera world: mezzo-soprano Maire Therese Carmack; tenor Joseph Dennis; and bass-baritones Brandon Cedel and Christopher Humbert, Jr.
