Faust made a name for itself as a puppet show during the 18th century in numerous versions that spanned a wide spectrum from socio-critical tragedy to comedy. When he was five years old, Goethe, accompanied by his grandmother, saw his very first performance of Faust at the fair in Frankfurt am Main. This encounter left a life-long impression on the future maestro. With a mixed ensemble composed of puppeteers and actors, we would like to make this experience come to life again in Berlin for all children.
