Robert Carsenmade his first international splash with this Mefistofele in in Geneva, but it was the following year, in San Francisco, that the show launched its decade-long sweep of America’s leading opera houses — Chicago, Houston, Washington, D.C., and finally, inthe Met.

Bigger is not necessarily better, but the biggest, superbly done, is — or should be — every opera lover’s dream.

Case in point: the humongous, overwhelming Robert Carsen–Michael Levine production of Arrigo Boito’s Mefistofele, which graced the opening gala of San Francisco Opera’s 91st season on Friday.

Yes, there were fund-raising parties. Ramey receives honourable assistance from Dennis O’Neill’s eloquently sung Faust, and while she’s arguably a little mature visually for both roles, Gabriela Benažková gives strong accounts of the seduced village maiden Margherita and the Classical siren Helen of Troy.

Maurizio Arena is the attentive conductor. Sound and picture quality are excellent, but I preferred Ramey's Mefistofele and Arena's conducting on the older San Francisco Opera DVD on Kultur.

Abdrazakov gives a robust, active performance, but Samuel Ramey is just chillingly evil. Otherwise this is a fine presentation of the opera and is certainly worth hearing and viewing.4/5(30). San Francisco Page 2 of 4 Opera Assn.
