Synopsis


The operatic spectacle Faust, Alberta explores the tragic story of Doctor Faustus and his fatal deal with Mephistopheles from a contemporary angle.


A Nameless Man finds himself in a remote cabin surrounded by frozen snowfields.


He doesn't know who he is nor where he is from, only that something is after him - an unstoppable machine that hunts those who fell from grace.


In nine scenes, he tries to collect his memory.


Triggered by snippets from his past, he slowly starts to put the pieces together.
