Internationally known concert organist Stephen Tharp performs "Faust" by Czech composer Petr Eben. Eben's Faust cycle for organ dates from 1980 and portrays a drama between Faust and Mephistopheles, following closely Goethe's great Faust text. Chicago actors Jill Shellabarger and Roger Mueller will perform dramatic readings from Goethe's Faust in alternation with the organ work's nine movements.
