MEFISTOFELE at the San Francisco Opera
Ildar Abdrazakov, Ramon Vargas, and Patricia Racette. The story is based on Goethe's genius play Faust. There is an opera called Faust by Charles Gounod. A few years ago, Patricia Racette starred in Gounod's Faust as Margarita in the SF Opera. This year, she stars as Margarita just in Boito's Mefistofele. The performance is conducted by Nicola Luisotti.
