By Arrigo Boito

Mefistofele is Arrigo Boito’s take on Goethe’s tale of Faust, the ageing scholar who bargains his soul to the Devil to regain youth and passion. Boito is known mostly for the brilliant libretti he wrote for Verdi’s final two operas, Otello and Falstaff, but this, his only opera, was the one that launched superstar bass Samuel Ramey. Evan Boyer will make his PNO debut as Mefistofele. The cast includes PNO stars Corinna Quilliam, previously seen as Brunnhilde, Turandot and Aida, and Stephen Rumph who was Hoffmann in Tales of Hoffmann.  James Brown, who has conducted PNO’s La Boheme, Carmen and Tales of Hoffmann, returns to the podium for Mefistofele.

In Italian with English supertitles.
