We’ve all had Berlioz’s experience with a good book. “I couldn’t put it down. I read it at meals, in the street.” Berlioz transformed this book by Goethe into a concert opera, The Damnation of Faust. It is among Stéphane Denève’s favorite works, and he brings a “dream cast” to tell its story of love, death and the devil.
