Charles Gounod

When Woland appears to Styopa he says: "Here I am!". Bulgakov has considered this exclamation as a possible title for The Master and Margarita. It comes from "Me voici!", the words used by Mephistopheles in the opera Faust by Charles Gounod, when he appears to Faust for the first time. 

On this page is shown a fragment of a performance of this opera by the Wiener Staatsoper on March 23, 1985.
