Notes and Editorial Reviews

Samuel Ramey has won overwhelming critical acclaim for his performance in the title role of this San Francisco Opera production of Boito's operatic masterpiece based on Goethe's "Faust". Robert Carsen's sumptuous post-modern production is a gloriously decadent and theatrically stunning realization, and the San Francisco Opera's performance has been unanimously acclaimed in both Paris and San Francisco. Also featuring Gabriela Benackova and Dennis O'Neill, conducted by Maurizio Arena.
