Berlioz The Damnation of Faust

Berlioz’s fantastically inventive choral triumph – part cantata, part opera, and part grand orchestral fantasy – was described by Thomas Beecham as ‘a glorious bunch of tunes’. We welcome a stellar cast of soloists to this musically thrilling tour-de-force, depicting everything from tender love duets, to student drinking songs, to a galloping ride to hell.

This concert is part of the Three Choirs Festival series
