Faust I and II / Berlin

  • Berliner Ensemble 1 Bertolt-Brecht-Platz Berlin, Berlin, 10117 Germany (map)

The German classic, Faust Part I and II by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, was Robert Wilson's second major collaboration on the stage with German rock star Herbert Grönemeyer after Leonce and Lena in 2003. Wilson and Grönemeyer chose an ensemble of 19 young actors and 8 live musicians, with the quirky Christopher Nell as Mephisto and the voices of Stefan Kurt and Angela Winkler as Earth Ghost and Homunculus.

Robert Wilson’s brilliant Faust fantasy is most entertainingly exciting and, despite all classical depth, pure agravic happiness.
