Stephen Oliver and Lewis Gaston

Stephen Oliver and Lewis Gaston are the stage and music directors for Guildford Opera’s next production, Gounod’s opera Faust.

When Gounod wrote Faust in the mid-nineteenth century, the opera world revolved around Paris and the French Grand Opera scene.

Steven and Lewis will explore the medieval origins of the Faust legend and show how Gounod transforms it into a timeless, tragic love story. Recordings of excerpts from the opera will be included to focus on particular points of musical interest.

To support the work of Guildford Opera The Guildford Institute will be offering this talk free of charge
