Faust (Jonas Kaufmann in the title role) comes to life with the MET's HD broadcast to local theaters.

Be "Faust" in line to get a pair of free tickets to see the Met's Faust on Saturday, December 10. Listen to Classical Music today in the noon hour for details. "Faust" come, "Faust" served. OK, I like puns. 

Gounod’s Faust– New Production
December 10, 2011, 12:55 pm ET

With Jonas Kaufmann in the title role, René Pape as the devil, and Marina Poplavskaya as Marguerite, Gounod’s classic retelling of the Faust legend couldn’t be better served. Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff updates the story to the first half of the 20th century with a production that won praise in London last season. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts on the heels of his Don Carlo success.

Approximate running time: 4 hours, 10 minutes
