I totally agree with review. Except to say that I would go further and say that it was "dull" "duller" and dullest! The dramatic plot points were glossed over- the metamorphosis of Faust from old to young- (a quick walk in walk out from a waft of smoke machine) to the quick dipping of a dolls head in what appeared to be a washroom basin- (the infanticide that leads to the female protagonist's demise.) The performers did well with the dire, confused direction imposed on them. Oh and lets not forget the dancers- doing a near rendition of the routine from the Thriller video! Oh dear. Three hours of your life you'll never get back! What an embarrassment ENO. - Lauren Michelle
