Berlioz, Hector, 1803-1869
Operas.; Faust, d. ca. 1540; Faust, -approximately 1540
General; Adult
The French composer, Berlioz was inspired by a translation of Goethe's dramatic poem Faust and produced a musical work that, like the masterpiece it's based on, defies easy categorization. Conceived at various times as a free-form oratorio and as an opera (Berlioz ultimately called it a "légende dramatique") its travelogue form and cosmic perspective have made it an extreme challenge to stage as an opera.
