    Question dure here next year

    Dear Teachers,


    I don't understand the first half of the this sentence:
    "Due here next year, Faust is a hallucinatory period piece..." What's the meaning of that "due here next year"? Could help me with that? Thank you in advance.

    What is the context? I could guess at a meaning, but I prefer to wait for more information.

    Re: dure here next year

    Faust is an opera, or perhaps it has been reworked into a play or some other kind of performance piece. If that's the context here, then the phrase means "scheduled to be performed here next year". "Due" basically means "forthcoming", "expected", or -- originally and most strongly -- "owed", as an obligation or debt.
