Faust Transforms

There is always an awkward moment in the opera as Faust changes from old age to youth.  Since he is a plastic surgeon, I see his “old” face as a falsely ageless one– we have developed our own Mephistophelean fountain of youth.  To transform him in the spirit of this opera, I would bring on Hollywood Stylists who change his appearance in shadow.  This keeps the action continuous in a way that serves the story.  Mephisto, of course, has better powers and Faust is truly transformed.
