BERLIOZ The Damnation of Faust
Sung in French with English supertitles

Eminent Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit, music director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and leading interpreter of French music, continues his multi-season series of programs with the BSO featuring the pinnacles of the French repertoire Thursday, October 26-Saturday, October 28 with three performances of Berlioz's The Damnation of Faust (sung in French with English supertitles). Defying clear categorization, Berlioz's work is equal parts opera, oratorio, and cantata, with text adapted from a French translation of Goethe's Faust. The BSO is joined by an outstanding all-American quartet of vocal soloists: mezzo-soprano Susan Graham as Marguerite, tenor Paul Groves as Faust, baritone David Kravitz as Brander, and bass-baritone John Relyea as Méphistophélès; as well as the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and a children's chorus.
