Best-known today as the librettist of Verdi's final Shakespearean masterpieces, Otello and Falstaff, the multitalented Arrigo Boito was also a fine composer in his own right. Hugely ambitious in scope, and some 20 years in the making, his first (and only completed) opera, Mefistofele, sets out to encompass nothing less than the whole of Goethe's vast poetic drama Faust (part I and II), and is considered the very central work of his phase between Verdi and Puccini. Making his debut at the Bayerische Staatsoper, director Roland Schwab (a protégé of the legendary Ruth Berghaus) plays devil's advocate by setting the opera in a nightmarish atmosphere. "The exceptional solistic cast" (ORF) features René Pape, Joseph Calleja, Kristine Opolais and Karine Babajanyan.
