In Stravinsky's operatic masterpiece, a reckless young Englishman is seduced by the Devil—or is it his own shadow?—into abandoning his true love for a life of shallow pleasures.

Poet W.H. Auden collaborated with the composer to create this morality tale about materialism and madness. The visionary Canadian director Robert Lepage, creator of Cirque du Soleil's dazzling Las Vegas extravaganza KÀ, stages this new production. Donald Runnicles conducts a veteran cast including tenor William Burden (as Tom Rakewell), soprano Laura Aikin (as Anne Trulove), mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves (as Baba the Turk), and bass-baritone James Morris as the devilish Nick Shadow.
