Adults - Thursday at 6:30 - Houston Grand Opera: Music, Literature and the Human Experience!

There are certain stories that weave their way into centuries of art and literature because they are central to our understanding of who we are. Faust and his infamous deal with the devil is one of these stories. From contemporary treatments on TV and in film to Gounod's opera, come explore the dichotomies of human experience through the story and circumstances of Gounod's Faust.

Spanning ten years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, to the north coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen. 

This is a fascinating film! It is rated PG-13 and the running time is 1 hour, 20 minutes.
