I lied! I said I wouldn't be doing any more posts about Opera this Summer.....but, the wonderful, witty Mim
http://ammdh.blogspot.com/ just posted about her Mother - who was, in fact, a professional Opera singer. Mim included a photo of her Mum in the role of Marguerite - the tragic heroine of Gounoud's Opera - "Faust". I won't explain the plot - as Mim's Mum did quite a good job of it on her post. But, as we are doing "Faust" here this Summer, I thought I should show a few photos...
Pictured above are Patricia Racette (as Marguerite) and Stefano Secco (as Faust). In order to have "youth" and "love". Faust sells his soul to ..... the Devil.
After many trials and succumbing to temptation...
Maguerite, is "saved" and ascends the "stairway to Heaven".... without Faust... who must pay the Devil with his soul...
And....not to end on such a serious note, here are a few photos of some of the "Supers" in this production.
Hope you enjoyed this Mim.... it really is my last Summer Opera Post!
