Mefistofele - Teatro El Círculo, Argentina - October, 2019 (High Definition)
Composer: Arrigo Boito
Details: At the beginning, there was a wager. Then the wager became a pact and Faust the wager’s stake. But when is a pact dissolved, a wager lost? »Arrestati, sei bello!« Time, stand still! It is not in the flush of ecstasy when Faust utters these words, but when celestial forces swoop down announcing his death. Lack of time as an attitude of life and a riddle we do not question as much as we should. Therefore, Faust can be regarded as the man of the hour. Back again or still at it – the future could catch up with us from behind. Cast includes: Licio Bruno, Enrique Folger, Daniela Tabernig, Florencia Machado, Daniel Gomez Lopez, Betina Briasco, Mariano Galetto. Conducted by Mario Perusso.
