La damnation de Faust

Faust extols solitude in the quiet of nature. The singing of peasants and a military march prevail, however. Faust wants to poison himself. The Easter hymn resounds, and with it come memories. Mephistopheles appears and promises Faust joy and happiness. Faust is disgusted by the noisy students in Auerbach's cellar in Leipzig. In the meadows of the Elbe, Mephistopheles conjures up a dream for Faust, who calls her Margarethe. Mephistopheles leads Faust through a procession of students and soldiers to their chamber. Faust goes into hiding. Margarethe swoons about her vision of Faust and sings a song. Mephistopheles lets phantoms dance. Faust and Margarethe confess their love for one another. Mephistopheles and the turmoil of the neighbours that he caused separate them. Faust flees into the countryside. He signs the contract with Satan in order to save Margarethe. She has been sentenced to death is because of matricide. The devil brings Faust to Hell. Margarethe is taken up in Heaven.
