Our Next Production

On 29 & 30 October 2022 Arcadian Opera will perform Gounod’s phantasmagorical opera Faust.

Based on the 1850 play by Michel Carré, which in turn was based on Goethe’s famous book of 1808, Gounod’s Faust captures the imagination with a series of jewel like tableaux and memorable melodies. Unsurprisingly it is, with Bizet’s Carmen, the most widely performed French opera in the world. Performed in English, the roles will be sung by professional singers supported by the experienced Arcadian Opera Chorus and Orchestra.

The cast for our production will be:

Faust: Richard James

Mephistopheles: Ian Beadle

Marguerite: Li HeMing

Valentin: Charlie Baigent

Siebel: Eleanor O’Driscoll

Martha: Hannah Morley

Wagner: David Broom
