CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Faust is a man of middle age who has grown tired of life and yearns only for sensual pleasure and for his lost youth. He summons up Mephistopheles, who agrees to grant his desires - but at the price of his eternal soul. An innocent woman, Marguerite, falls victim to this diabolical pact when she is seduced by Faust: the result is her destruction. But whilst for Marguerite there is hope of redemption, for Faust there is none.Performers Vittorio Grigolo (Faust), Angela Gheorghiu (Marguerite Sep 21//24/28), Rene Pape, Malin Bystrom (Marguerite Sep 26 Oct 7/10), Dmitri Hvorostovsky, ZhengZhong Zhou (Valentin Oct 7/10), Michele Losier (Siebel), Daniel Grice (Wagner), Carole Wilson (Martha Schwertlein).
