From selling your soul to the devil to finding salvation – Sir Simon Rattle ventures through Berlioz's tempestuous oratorio, The Damnation of Faust.

Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust is a work born of the composer’s obsession with Goethe's legendary tale. Once a righteous scholar, Faust allows himself to be corrupted by the devil, and drags the innocent around him into desperation and death. It’s a fable that defies definition – both a tragedy and dark comedy, with a central character both wise and despicable, and a play and epic poem in one.

Mystified by this tragic story, Berlioz’s work is, too, an astounding hybrid of opera, oratorio and, in the composer’s own words, ‘dramatic legend’. From tender moments of religious piety to incessant military marches and terrifying flourishes of demonic fury, Sir Simon Rattle leads the LSO in a colossal choral work like none other.
