2 Works in Faust - Gounod/Barbier
The real reason why Faust left Marguerite.
The opera 'Faust' by Charles Gounod.
Marguerite is carried off to Heaven, while Faust is left to the dubious care of his servant and master. This is based on both the Gounod and Berlioz Faust operas--it starts where the Gounod opera ends, but at the end I seem to have drifted into the Berlioz by directly quoting a translation of the most romantic line from Mephistopheles' aria "Voici des roses". WARNINGSAUCE because I would classify this as "dubious consent".
