Professor Henri Faust, retiring after fifty years as an alchemist, despairs at still knowing nothing of the true secrets of nature . . . whereupon his old acquaintance Mephistopheles, servant of Lucifer, appears and grants him youth and a new life.

And Mephistopheles, who has taken on the guise of the elderly Faust that was, sets many snares for his young friend’s slippery soul.
