As a continuation of the double projects launched in previous seasons, Schauspiel Leipzig takes different approaches to both parts of Faust – and presents them in quite different ways. Faust I takes place on the Main Stage, continuing the Leipzig work with choirs. For Part II, the audience leaves the Schauspielhaus and the classic theatre situation – dividing the production into three parallel topical tours of the city of Leipzig, driven by our interest in which topics from Faust II still occupy us today and what connections we can draw from the material into our own times.
The tours start at the Schauspielhaus and take place simultaneously: Spectators can only take part in one tour per performance. For the ending of Faust II, all three tours will reunite at the Schauspielhaus.
