The performance promises to be revolutionary, as it is directed by Robert Le-page, whos worked with everyone from Peter Gabriel to Cirque du Soleil to Seiji Ozawa. Filled with scaffolding and cinematic projections, the tale moves from Fausts small study to the bowels of Hell. Its a grand affair, and Lepage is clearly up to the challenge. This production stars Marcello Giordani as Faust, opposite Susan Graham as Marguerite and John Relyea as Méphistophélès, with James Levine conducting. See it today at noon at various movie theaters around Houston. For information, visit www.metopera-family.org/metopera. $16 to $24.
