"Faust" is an opera composed by Charles Gounod, based on the play "Faust" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The opera tells the story of Faust, an aging scholar who makes a deal with the devil, Mephistopheles, in exchange for youth, beauty, and love. The story explores themes of temptation, redemption, and the struggle between good and evil.

The opera premiered at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris on March 19, 1859. It was an immediate success and became one of the most popular operas of the 19th century. The aria "Salut! demeure chaste et pure" sung by the character Faust is particularly famous and has been performed by many renowned tenors.

Siebel is a character in the opera, a young man who is in love with Marguerite, the object of Faust's desire. He sings the aria "Faites-lui mes aveux" in Act II, expressing his love for Marguerite.
