Presented by John J.H. Muller

Sacrilegious, mystical, and captivatingly beautiful, Mefistofele recounts the Faustian tale from the devil’s perspective, sung by bass-baritone Christian Van Horn. Mefistofele is the first and only completed opera by Arrigo Boito—who later collaborated with Verdi on Otello, Falstaff, and the revised version of Simon Boccanegra. Juilliard faculty member and Guild lecturer John J.H. Muller takes us through Boito’s independent writing and composing process in this comprehensive pre-performance talk.
