Faustus focusse on the insatiable scholar who sells his soul to the Devil in return for 24 years of power and pleasure. Black magic is his means, damnation at death is the price.
Roaming through the garden of earthly delights, Faustus is entertained by the Seven Deadly Sins. He summons the spirit of Alexander the Great. He conjures up the beautiful Helen of Troy.
Impossible dreams of glory come true. But always waiting in the wings is Mephostopholis - fallen angel, seducer and servant to great Lucifer - waiting for Faustus' final hour.
