The rock opera FAUST I and FAUST II were performed in the Fauststadt Staufen at the end of the cultural week. This city is closely related to the 500-year-old legend of the historical Faust. It is said that in the year 1539 he did live in the Gasthaus Löwen in room no. 5. There he was killed in an explosion when trying to make gold.
First premiere of ″FAUST II – The Rock Opera″ on June 29th. It was done at the occasion of the yearly ″FAUST Festival″ in Kronach. Many experts consider Goethe’s literary work as the “crown of world literature”. Therefore, it is surprising that there was no other opera before.
FAUST – The Rock Opera in a foreign language. It was presented in Spanish. The translation was done by Rocio Oporto. Several performances did take place at the ″Centro Cultural Peruano Norteamericano″ in Arequipa – Peru. The director Gabriel Barriga Gómez was also responsible for the production. Video
