LES ENFANTS TERRIBLES
The third installment of composer Philip Glass’s trilogy based on the work of Jean Cocteau, Les Enfants Terribles is the story of a brother and sister – Paul and Lise – cut off from the world and dangerously dependent on each other.
In despair the aging and regretful scholar Faust makes a deal with the devil for an ill-fated chance at youth, vitality and love. Featuring music from the opera that hasn’t been heard in over 150 years, Opera Omaha taps a new edition of Faust that reconstructs Gounod’s earliest versions of the work.
