Faust - Kentish Opera - Stag Theatre
- 7th November
A tale of temptation and devotion, lust
and sacrifice was played out well in the concert version of Gounod's
'Faust' by Kentish opera on Saturday night. A superb evenings
entertainment with a large orchestra and chorus under direction
of Robyn Sevastos, costumes by Carol Stevenson and lighting by
Colin Martin. I had never heard this Opera in full, but I am
now a fan, mainly due to this production. Principals were all
exceptional in their roles as were the chorus. This piece as
a concert worked, I thought the simple side staging worked well,
as one was focused on the singers and not the full stage, which
I think sometimes you loose impact of the opera.
Thank you Kentish Opera for my first Faust.
