Edinburgh Festival Chorus
Gentlemen of the Hallé Choir
As part of the Edinburgh International Festival in August, the orchestra, Edinburgh Festival Chorus and the gentlemen of the Hallé Choir will perform Berlioz’s opera, La damnation de Faust, led by Sir Mark.
Dancing skeletons, drunken rats and a wild, reckless ride to damnation: just some of the unforgettable evocations in Berlioz’s visionary and epic musical retelling of the Faust legend. Deeply moving and wildly entertaining, La damnation de Faust matches dazzling orchestral brilliance with a heartbreaking story of human love and devilish deception.
