Ozsváth & Turner – A Dramatic Reading of Faust @ The Dallas Institute

Goethe’s Faust: A Dramatic Reading of a New Translation

Goethe’s Faust is at the heart of the great change that created the modern world. Goethe’s vision of the unity of nature and the human spirit, his philosophy of growth and process, and his astonishing poetry, both lushly lyrical and philosophically brilliant, influenced the English romantics and the American transcendentalists and helped drive a new evolutionary view of reality.

Zsuzsanna Ozsváth and Frederick Turner have completed a new, dynamic poetic translation of the play. In this public debut of their latest work, Dr. Turner, the celebrated actor Fred Curchack, and other performers will give the play a stirring dramatic reading on the Institute stage.

Event is $10 for Educator Members and free for students
