Act I
Faust has spent a lifetime in the study of science. Disillusioned with life, he resolves to poison himself. He curses God and calls on the Devil. Mephistopheles obligingly appears and offers Faust riches, power, or glory. Faust, however, only wants to recapture the innocence of youth. Mephistopheles agrees to Faust’s request, but there are conditions: on earth Faust will be master, but in the world below their roles will be reversed. When Faust hesitates, Mephistopheles conjures up a vision of Marguerite. Faust signs the contract and returns to his youth.

第一幕
浮士德一生醉心於科學研究,對生命感到無趣的他決定服毒自殺。浮士德咒罵上帝,呼喚魔鬼協助。惡魔梅菲斯托菲勒斯應聲現身,賦予他富貴、權力或榮耀,但浮士德只想再次體驗熱情青春。梅菲斯托菲勒斯答���他的願望,但代價是浮士德的靈魂。正當浮士德猶豫不決,梅菲斯托菲勒斯作法讓他看到年輕貌美的瑪格麗特。浮士德接受梅菲斯托菲勒斯的條件,搖身一變回英俊青年。

Act II
Valentin and Wagner are going off to war with the other soldiers, and Valentin is concerned about leaving his sister Marguerite unprotected. Wagner starts a song to cheer everyone up, but is interrupted by Mephistopheles. Mephistopheles tells fortunes: Wagner, it seems, will be killed in his first battle. The flowers that Si?bel picks will wither, and Valentin will meet his death at the hands of someone close to Mephistopheles. Dissatisfied with the wine on offer, Mephistopheles conjures up a better vintage to toast Marguerite. This angers Valentin and both draw their swords. Valentin strikes out and his blade shatters. Everyone is convinced they are in the presence of the Devil. Mephistopheles leads Faust to a place where couples are dancing. Faust sees Marguerite and offers her his arm. She refuses, but so charmingly that he is left more entranced than before. 

第二幕
華倫丁與好友華格納即將出征。華倫丁擔心留下妹妹瑪格麗特獨守家門。華格納唱起歌來安慰眾人,卻被梅菲斯托菲勒斯現身打斷。梅菲斯托菲勒開始預言未來:華格納首上戰場便會身亡、席貝爾採下的花朵會凋謝、華倫丁將死於梅菲斯托菲勒斯認識的人手上。他還變出美酒,邀請眾人為瑪格麗特乾���。此舉激怒華倫丁,拔劍欲與他決鬥,豈料劍隨即碎裂。眾人深信梅菲斯托菲勒斯就是���鬼化身。

梅菲斯托菲勒斯帶領浮士德到跳舞的情侶之中。浮士德見到瑪格麗特,邀請她共舞卻被婉拒。此舉只令他更被瑪格麗特迷住。

Act III
Siebel gathers flowers for Marguerite outside her house. As Mephistopheles predicted, they wither, but holy water seems to restore them. Mephistopheles and Faust have been watching, and Mephistopheles leaves a box of jewels for Marguerite. The atmosphere of innocence surrounding Marguerite’s home moves Faust. Marguerite finds the jewels and puts them on. When she looks in the mirror, she sees a different woman and is further confused by the encouragement of her neighbour, Marthe. Faust and Mephistopheles return, and Mephistopheles flirts with Marthe, giving Faust the opportunity to seduce Marguerite. She begins to give in. Mephistopheles conjures up a garden and makes Marthe run off before disappearing himself. Marguerite realizes she loves Faust and they make love.

第三幕
席貝爾在瑪格麗特的家門外採花。正如梅菲斯托菲勒斯所預言,花朵凋謝了,卻被聖水澆灌起死回生。梅菲斯托菲勒斯和浮士德在一邊觀察,梅菲斯托菲勒斯給瑪格麗特留下了一盒珠寶,瑪格麗特平靜的家深深打動了浮士德。瑪格麗特發現了珠寶,並馬上試戴。她在鏡子中看到不一樣的自己,而鄰居瑪特鼓勵她接受追求者的好意令她更為疑惑。浮士德與梅菲斯托菲勒斯回來,梅菲斯托菲勒斯跟瑪特調情,給浮士德製造機會誘惑瑪格麗特。她被浮士德打動,接受他的追求。梅菲斯托菲勒斯作法讓瑪特跑走,自己亦離開。瑪格麗特愛上了浮士德,並互訴情意。


Intermission
中場休息


Act IV
Seduced and abandoned, Marguerite is expecting Faust’s child. She is still in love with him and prays for him and their unborn child.

The soldiers return with Valentin. Siebel tries to stop him seeing Marguerite but Valentin, suspecting the worst, pushes him aside.

Outside her house, Mephistopheles serenades Marguerite on Faust’s behalf. Valentin and Faust fight and, with the intervention of Mephistopheles, Valentin is fatally wounded. Marguerite watches her brother die and hears him curse her with his last breath.

Distraught, Marguerite goes to church to pray for forgiveness. When she hears the voice of Mephistopheles telling her that she is damned, she collapses in terror.

第四幕
被勾引後拋棄的瑪格麗特身懷浮士德的孩子獨守空房。思念著浮士德的瑪格麗特為他和未出生的孩子祈禱。華倫丁與士兵朋友們平安回歸。席貝爾企圖阻止華倫丁跟瑪格麗特見面,但華倫丁堅持進屋。瑪格麗特的家門外,梅菲斯托菲勒斯唱著諷刺的小夜曲,激怒了華倫丁,要與浮士德決鬥。在梅菲斯托菲勒斯協助下,華倫丁身受重傷。瑪格麗特看著哥哥身亡,死前不斷咒罵她。

傷心欲絕的瑪格麗特跑去教堂,祈求上帝原諒,但卻聽到梅菲斯托菲勒斯的聲音,告訴她必下地獄。瑪格麗特驚恐地昏倒過去。

Act V
Walpurgis Night. Faust and Mephistopheles are surrounded by a group of demons. Faust is shown a vision of Marguerite: she has been imprisoned for infanticide and gone insane. 

With Mephistopheles’s help, Faust goes to the prison in an attempt to save Marguerite. She seems to recognize her lover and recalls the night when he first seduced her. Faust is overwhelmed with pity. Marguerite panics at the sight of the Devil and, with a frantic appeal to heaven, she dies. Mephistopheles damns her but angelic voices proclaim she is saved. 

第五幕
沃普爾吉斯之夜。浮士德與梅菲斯托菲勒斯與惡魔們聚會。浮士德看到瑪格麗特的幻影:她因弒子之罪被囚禁,精神錯亂。在梅菲斯托菲勒斯的協助下,浮士德試圖闖入監獄救她。像是認得情人,瑪格麗特回想起他們的初夜,浮士德十分悔恨。看到梅菲斯托菲勒斯的身影,瑪格麗特驚慌失措,發狂地向上帝禱告後身亡。梅菲斯托菲勒斯詛咒她,卻被天使阻止,讓瑪格麗特的靈魂升天。
