La damnation de Faust (English: The Damnation of Faust), Op. 24 is a work for four solo voices, full seven-part chorus, large children's chorus and orchestra by the French composer Hector Berlioz. He called it a "légende dramatique" (dramatic legend). It was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on 6 December 1846.

16. Part Two, Scene VIII. A live recording by Pierre Monteux/LSO from 1962 is one of the finest musical jobs ever obtained, though the sound is not up to modern standards; still very listenable, however. The best of the historic lot is Markevitch on DG, but there are a couple of small cuts taken; the early stereo sound is quite good. The winner and still number one for "La Damnation de Faust" remains Markevitch on DG, from all the way back in 1959 (very early stereo, but it still sounds better than this one). If you want Davis in this work, find the earlier (ca. 1973) version on Philips.

La Damnation de Faust, Part II, scene 5. This marvellous book fascinated me from the very beginning. I could not put it down. I read it incessantly, during meals, in the theatre, in the street, everywhere. And so it was, following the composer’s discovery of Faust Part One in 1828 that Goethe joined Virgil and Shakespeare to form Berlioz's trinity. Without taking the time to catch his breath, he set the verse passages of Gérard de Nerval’s translation to music and published them under the title Huit scènes de Faust.

La Damnation de Faust is divided into four parts, the first of which showcases the scholar Faust contemplating why he will never achieve the simple happiness of peasants. In the second part, Faust prepares for suicide but the sound of church bells stops him. Méphistophélès offers him the restoration of youth, greater knowledge and the fulfillment of all his wishes, an offer Faust cannot refuse. After an episode in a tavern, Faust is taken to a meadow where he is shown a vision of a beautiful woman. They will be joined by the Choeur et Ballet de l'Opéra Grand Avignon. Samuel Jean will lead the Orchestre Régionale Avignon-Provence. Performance Dates: Nov.
