Portland opera previews their production of Charles Gounod's opera "Faust" with the sets designed by John Frame. This 50-minute program is hosted by Chorus Master & Assistant Conductor Nicholas Fox with musical highlights by singers Thomas Cilluffo, Kate Farrar and Shi Li.

Description the opera from the Portland Opera website,

"Lyricism and legend converge in Gounod’s unforgettable masterpiece. When the devil appears and offers Faust a second chance at youth in exchange for his soul, he makes the pact, and then uses his newfound powers to seduce the youthful and innocent Marguerite—with tragic consequences."
