51 Walden Performing Arts Center
51 Walden Street, Concord, MA

A fully costumed and staged performance with orchestra sung in French with projected English titles. A fundraiser production with proceeds going to support the 51 Walden physical facility. The classic story of Faust striking a bargain with the devil (Mephistopheles) in order to regain his youth, with tragic consequences for the young woman who naively succumbs to his advances (Marguerite), miraculous redemption after all for her, and eternal damnation for Faust. A classic of the grand opera tradition, this is Opera51's twelfth annual operatic fundraiser for 51 Walden.
