Boito’s epic is delivered with conviction in this 1985 performance, with Nicola Ghiuselev grand and unruly as the devil incarnate, Kaloudi Kaloudov providing a truly Italianate quality as Faust, and Stefka Evstatieva a comprehensive Margherita. Dynamic orchestral playing and conducting, but no libretto. George Hall
