It's the story of a man who, upon reaching the twilight of his life, wishes for one thing alone: to recapture his youth. He achieves this with the help of the devil and in exchange for his soul. A multi-faceted character, the role of Faust in Charles Gounod's opera of the same name requires the performer to embody disenchanted old age whilst at the same time lending his voice to a romantic and lovestruck young man. Tenor Benjamin Bernheim explains all the vocal subtleties of the score and retraces the great tradition of French singing, without overlooking his special relationship with the Paris Opera.
