Double Tony Award winning stage director Desmond McAnuff s production, hailed by the New York Times as rich with ideas and theatrically daring , presents Faust as an atomic scientist inhabiting a dark world shot through with Cold War resonances.

Alongside Kaufmann, a typically gold-standard Met cast includes the phenomenal René Pape as Méphistophélès and the ideally-suited Marina Poplavskaya as Marguerite.

Star conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin draws an elegant, darkly textured performance from the Metropolitan Opera orchestra.

Great singing from all participants. My only complaint is the updating to a nuclear power plant in the 20th century. I see no reason for the director to do that! The quality of the singers does more than make up for the bizarre staging, so I do recommend this DVD.

Superb singing and enough to scare the Hell out of anyone. The only detracting comment would be that Bryn Terfel’s Mephestopheles in the 2011 Royal Opera House beat out Rene Pape by an inch. Bryn Terfel in drag as the Queen of Hell just can’t be beat. Jonas Kaufmann and Marina Poplavskaya, on the other hand, were tops. And nothing can beat the Metropolitan Orchestra and chorus. A superb production.
