On May 18, 20 and 22, Irina Lungu reprises the role of Marguerite in Gounod’s Faust in a new production by Alfonso Romero Mora conducted by Antonio Pirolli at the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos in Lisbon. Other singers of the cast include Mario Bahg, Rubén Amoretti, André Baleiro and Càtia Moreso.

Irina Lungu returns to Lisbon and the Teatro Nacional after 16 years of absence, having last sung the title role of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta in 2006.

She has just obtained an enormous success as Marguerite in her Greek National Opera debut in April, and has also performed the role at the Teatro alla Scala, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Sydney Opera House and the Teatro Real of Madrid, among others.
