We stop by the Salzburg Festival for a concert performance of Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust featuring Charles Castronovo as the romantic and tortured title character, with Ildar Abdrazakov as the wily Mephistopheles and Elīna Garanča as Marguerite. Alain Altinoglu conducts the Vienna Philharmonic, which enjoys an annual summer residency at the Salzburg Festival.
