In despair the aging and regretful scholar Faust makes a deal with the devil for an ill-fated chance at youth, vitality and love. Featuring Gounod's music from the opera that hasn’t been heard in over 150 years, Opera Omaha taps a new edition of Faust that reconstructs Gounod’s earliest versions of the work. Conductor Steven White returns to Opera Omaha, as does Samuel Schultz singing the role of Wagner, in a fascinating new production by director Lileana Blain-Cruz.
