Ep. 79 Mefistofele By Arrigo Boito
1 hr 59 min
The Devil takes center stage in this opera based on the Faust story: a timeless tale of the seductive nature of evil and the redemptive promise of grace. Known primarily for his many successful libretti, Arrigo Boito gave his full poetic, philosophical, and musical talents to this, his only complete opera.  This is the third in a series of Opera For Everyone podcasts featuring operas based on Goethe’s “Faust.”  Also in the series:  Episode 76 "La Damnation de Faust" by Hector Berlioz, and Episode 78 "Faust" by Charles Gounod. All three are hosted by Pat and guest co-host Kathleen Van De Wille.
