This Opera is an adaptation of the classic tragedy of Doctor Faustus. In this version, Doctor Faustus sells his soul in order to invent electric light. Feeling unfulfilled in this transaction with the demon Mephisto, he seeks out a way to enter hell.
“I sold my soul to make it bright with electric light and now no one not I not she not they, not he are interested in that thing and I and I cannot go to hell I have sold my soul to make a light”
