"He that loves pleasure must for pleasure fall"
Faustus is a respected but frustrated scholar. He dreams of knowledge beyond the realm of men – of all things that move beyond the quiet poles, the mysteries of the universe, the secrets of kings; a knowledge that will lead to great power and eternize his legacy.
This unquenchable desire for fame drives him to master the metaphysics of magicians and he summons the demon Mephastophilis. Despite his own doubts and Mephastophilis’ warnings, the fated doctor demands he strike a deal with Lucifer – Faustus’ soul for twenty-four years of omnipotence.
Drunk with his new powers he travels the world gaining unmatched notoriety the cost of which is infinitely high as the damned hour approaches.

John Mills is the only remaining pupil of Segovia to be performing in public. Internationally renowned for his Segovia like sumptuous sounds, thousands of amateur guitarists in the UK have learned from his guitar tutors. For many he is “the guitarists’ guitarist”
The Archaeus quartet have a 27 year history of appearing at prestige venues such as the Wigmore hall and Purcell Room, and recording the music of interesting often neglected composers such as Leonard Salzedo,York Bowen, Cyril Scott, and Ethel Smyth.
