Goth rocker Nick Cave has penned the score for actor GISLI ORN GAROARSSON's ambitious new stage adaptation of Faust.
Cave's latest musical creation will be heard when the production opens at London's Young Vic this weekend (25Sep10).
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time star Garoarsson, the director of the piece, says, "It was really inspiring working with Nick Cave and his violinist Warren Ellis and seeing how they work. They are the perfect recipe for this play because it's so rock 'n' roll and the music is very theatrical."
The production marks the third time the trio have worked together - Cave and Ellis also scored the soundtrack to Garoarsson's plays Metamorphosis and Woyzeck.
