Last month, CCM mounted a unique multimedia production of Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust (The Damnation of Faust). If you missed this E-Media, Choral and Orchestral collaboration, here is a glimpse of the production that critics have hailed as “extraordinary.”

The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s Janelle Gelfand writes of the performance: “It was ambitious for students to tackle, and they rose to the occasion. For the listener, it was a revelation to hear this rarely-performed work, and there were some truly thrilling moments.” Read the full review on Gelfand’s Arts in Focus blog.

Music In Cincinnati‘s Mary Ellyn Hutton writes: “It was a splendid performance, vocally, instrumentally and as an example of what a great conservatory can do. It was also attuned to its mission, even its duty, as an academic institution, to experiment.” Read the full review on Music in Cincinnati’s website.
