Ruxandra Donose, Charles Castronovo, Willard White and Charles Dekeyser are back at the Salle des Combins, to perform The Faust Damnation with the Collegiate Chorale, performing this year again with the Verbier Festival Orchestra

Faust is a victim of the "malady of his century," the feeling characterized by melancholy and dissatisfaction which marked artistic creation in the beginning of the 19th century and set the basis of the Romantic Movement.

But in order to avoid disgrace and Marguerite's mother's fury, they have to part.
