Feb 25-March 5

IU Musical Arts Center

The last time Tomer Zvulun stage-directed a new production of an opera at Indiana University was 2009’s storybook-designed “The Magic Flute,” which went on to a professional production by Atlanta Opera, and will soon be seen staged in Cincinnati and Austin, Texas.

For his latest production, Zvulun and the IU Opera design team are exploring the nostalgia and quest for youth in his reimagining of Charles Gounod’s “Faust.” The familiar tale of a deal with the devil is getting a bit of a twist as the hero not only becomes young again, but is taken back from 2010 to the 1930s.
