Mefistofele is an immense, imposing and fascinating opera. Its huge choirs will take you from the heavens to the deepest of the underworld. Guided by Mefistofele, you will travel with Faust and discover with him, not youth, but happiness! This work, so admired by Arturo Toscanini, is one of the lyrical repertoire’s most impressive operas, and turned out to be the first great European opera. It thus fully deserves to be performed at Orange’s Roman Theatre. Served by a prestigious cast, with, for the first time at the Chorégies, a woman as music direc-tor, Nathalie Stutzmann, this opera is emblematic of the new start that our Festival is taking, while never failing short of the vast heritage that is ours.
