Terry Gilliam — Faust
Filmmaker and former Python Terry Gilliam's smash-hit production of Berlioz's Damnation of Faust for English National Opera has been one of the operatic highlights of 2011. Peter Hoare stars as Faust, with Christopher Purves as Mephistopheles, who propels him on a rollercoaster ride through German history, ending with the rise of Hitler and Faust's inevitable damnation. Edward Gardner conducts the ENO Chorus and Orchestra.
Christopher appears at the beginning, and 32 minutes in.

In 2012, the online verbatim series MONO_POP created a sponsor page where people could donate anything from £1. As a thankyou, they sent supporters badges, personalised portraits and more. As a fan, I donated £1000 and as a thankyou they are creating a mini-series dedicated to the release of my new album, “Handel: Finest Arias For Base Voice”.
