Mar. 02, 2012 - A Revolutionary ''Damnation of Faust'' presented at the Paris Opera. The Opera de Paris decided to let Maurice Bejart, the famous author and choreographer stage the ''Damnation of Faust'' by Berlioz. The premiere of the opera will be held tomorrow evening and it is almost certain that some people will not like all they see. Maurice Bejart, without changing a single note from the original score, has conceived the ''Damnation'' like a ballet. He has incorporated in it a scene which makes a parody of the ''Last Super'' painting by Leonard De Vinci, by having drunks participate in it.
