    Faust is played in modern war fare-the nuke boom and political fanatics. This is another version of dr. Faust who created monsters that ultimately destroyed himself!?

    I like it in the way that it is different from what I had watched too many romantic operas.

    Thank you, Jim ! I do too. I was fortunate enough to be at the last opening night of the Old Met and saw Faust. What a beautiful production. I totally agree, I much prefer the traditional productions !!!!
