Berlioz's 'La Damnation de Faust' with Laporte, Walerowicz, Arnasi and Dries from Hannover
Berlioz's 'La Damnation de Faust' is a work for four solo voices, full seven-part chorus, large children's chorus and orchestra. The aging scholar Faust contemplates the renewal of nature. Hearing peasants sing and dance, he realizes that their simple happiness is something he will never experience. An army marches past in the distance (Hungarian March). Faust doesn't understand why the soldiers are so enthusiastic about glory and fame. Performers:
Faust: Eric Laporte.
Marguerite: Monika Walerowicz.
Méphistophélès: Shavleg Armasi.
Brander: Michael Dries / Daniel Eggert.
Staatsoper Hannover Children's Choir, Choir and Extra-Choir. Niedersächsisches Staatsorchester Hannover. Conductor: Ivan Repušic.
