Jan Karstensen, director of Kristiansund Opera, said, "Faust addresses some of the great, eternal questions about a person's integrity and whether it should be for sale. . . and whether we should manipulate the natural course of life. Metal, too, addresses the big questions in life through its expression of the dark side."
Faust—Metal Opera will be reprised five more times over the next month, and will be performed in some local high schools as well.
