“Faust, A Tragedy” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is considered the most important and most cited work of German literature. As part of the current Faust-Festival in Munich, we would like to invite you to visit with MESA Martin Kusejs production of “Faust” in the Residenztheater.
The play is about Faust, an erudite who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life. After an attempt to take his own life, he calls the Devil, willing to exchangehis soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. In response, the Devil’s representative, Mephistopheles, appears. He makes a bargain with Faust: Mephistopheles will serve Faust with his magic powers for a set number of years, but at the end of the term, the Devil will claim Faust’s soul, and Faust will be eternally enslaved.

Franz Schreker was considered one of the most important opera composers of his time - he was even referred to as the only legitimate successor to Richard Wagner. Therefore, MESA cordially invites you to join us for the opera at the National Theatre to see „The Stigmatized“. The opera will be in German with German and English surtitles. The play lasts 3 ½ hours, there is a break of 30 minutes.
„The Stigmatized“ is about the physically disfigured Alviano Salvago who appears condemned to a life without love and erotic fulfillment. He devotes all his energy to creating a perfect – if artificial – world, in accordance with his vision – the island of Elysium. Yet, this beautiful utopia has a dark side. Inspired by Alviano's maxim, „Let beauty be the bounty of the strong“, the city of Genua’s male elite regularly abduct young women, take them to the island and rape them. Alviano seeks to bring an end to this and make his creation available to the whole world.
