What would persuade a man to sell his soul? The myth of Faust has fascinated writers for centuries. Matthew Sweet discusses its enduring appeal with playwright Mark Ravenhill, the author of 'Faust is Dead' and the actor Simon Callow.
The programme is part of Radio 3's Proms Plus Literary exploring some of the literary and cultural dimensions of this year's Proms concerts. They're recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music, right next door to the Albert Hall and just before the concerts themselves.
