La damnation de Faust | Hector Berlioz

The triumph of the demonic but also the wonder of magic, of female enchantment, and of the sense of panic of nature. A mosaic of impressive musical richness that treats the Faustian myth without mediation, with a revolutionary dramaturgy, and a ruthless epilogue.
