Upcoming Events:

Faust

Friday, August 14, 7:30pm & Sunday, August 16, 3:00pm

Berks Opera Company is excited to present a ground-breaking production of Gounod's masterpiece, Faust, conceptualized to address the issue of addiction. Based on the immortal tale by Goethe, Faust tells the story of an aging scientist who sells his soul to the devil for a final opportunity at youth and love. Though Faust will be set in our own city of Reading, the performance conveys a message that is relevant to every town in America.

We are excited to partner with Caron Treatment Centers to present a production that illustrates a new perspective of this classic work. Caron Treatment Centers, a Berks-based non-profit, is one of the nation's largest drug and alcohol addiction treatment providers. The performance depicts the cycle of addiction and rehabilitation with supertitles that are faithful to the language of the modern drug culture.

Art is a primary method of education to the public on topical issues, especially in our own community. Though Faust was first presented more than 150 years ago, the dilemma in the story remains relevant to issues facing our neighbors, friends and family members. There is an ever-present need for dialogue and education about substance use and abuse in Reading. Furthermore, there is a corresponding need to remind residents about treatment resources and to remind ourselves that the community in which we live inspires art and deserves celebration. We believe this production will help to show how germane the arts are to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Moreover, this story will assist its audience in realizing that, no matter what one's deal with the devil might be, there is always hope for recovery.
