Blaming the Victim - The Damnation of Faust & Trust

Blaming the Victim

 The Damnation of Faust – Hector Berloiz, Lyric Opera & Trust – by David Schwimmer, Lookingglass Theater

 Let me first start by saying that this review has no pretensions of being a scholarly work. But having seen these two works performed in less than a week, I was struck by the similar themes running through both works.

 Both stories revolve around the seduction of an innocent and how the victim as well as society views the victim in the aftermath.
