Come tick off a bucket list item and see NZ singers in a famous French opera, in a modern production at the Opera Bastille in Paris. 

Faust is based on German author Goethe's story about a man (Faust, played by Pene Pati) who sells his soul to the devil for eternal youth, in order to win the heart of youthful Marguerite (played by Amina Edris). The music includes famous arias such as the Jewel Song, known by Tintin fans as Castafiore's song.

The production is set in contemporary Paris, with videography staging. It will be surtitled in French and English, and is 3h50 long, with two intervals. For those who wish, we will go for drinks afterwards at The Black Sheep Society, just around the corner.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. We need to sell at least 10 tickets for this event to go ahead; in the event we do not, you will be refunded.
