Notes & Reviews:

Berlioz spent nearly 20 years working on his "dramatic legend". The Damnation of Faust is not a traditional opera, but a unique blend of opera, song cycle, cantata and symphony. The action moves not in a linear progression, but in a dreamlike, almost cinematic manner. Today it is more popular than ever since its premiere in 1846.
