Young composer Henry receives a commission from an opera manager: he must write a ‘Faust’, with as much money, as many musicians, and as much time as he wishes. A luxury, or a pact with the devil... Will he finish his work, go on a journey or have a love affair? Will the ending be a triumph, a fiasco or a tragedy? With a funfair as backdrop, the 23 musicians, singers and actors of this contemporary opera bow to the audience’s choices. What will you decide? Pure entertainment, a story that punishes sin, or an audacious work of art? It’s up to you!
