At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A great opera classic.

The action takes place in Hungary and then Germany. Faust, overwhelmed by disgust for life, wants to end his days by taking poison. Easter hymns lift him out of his despair, reawakening his childhood faith, but this mystical fervour leads to the sudden appearance of the devil, Mephistopheles, who promises to reveal all the pleasures of existence and takes him to a tavern surrounded by a noisy crowd of revellers.
The Damnation of Faust is not an opera but was rather written by Berlioz as an oratorio, showing scant regard for narration. Damnation is more of a theatre of the imagination, linking diverse musical scenes that range from solitary meditation and outbursts from the crowd to surges of love and demonic rages, depending on the composer's inspiration. Most of the time, it is left to the orchestra to convey and encapsulate the passion of Goethe's masterpiece. The famous Hungarian March, one of the work's swaggering show pieces, is one such an example
