Romantic opera by Carl Maria von Weber

A test shot to win Agathe and the forester's lodge puts young hunter Max under pressure. So much so, in fact, that he has been missing even the easiest shots for weeks - although he is usually accurate. In this emotional chaos, the conniving Kaspar sees his chance to take revenge, as Agathe was promised to him before he went to war. He helps Max to cast free bullets that hit everything. Of the seven free balls, the seventh is the one that is controlled by dark forces - but Kaspar leaves Max in the dark about this detail...

Weber and Kind set the fantastic plot, which focuses on human destiny, directly at the end of the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648). Society is made up of people who do not know peace and who all bring their traumas from this terrible time with them. And yet at the end, "Der Freischütz" is a life-affirming utopia with a jubilant, glorious conclusion that gives hope for a good world.

"Der Freischütz" was already a huge success at its premiere. Many of the musical numbers became world-famous. With this work, Weber gave German Romantic opera a boost and paved the way for Richard Wagner's musico-dramatic work with its rich orchestral sounds. Sometimes it storms and rages from the orchestra pit, sometimes Weber conjures up sunshine and idyll. There is no shortage of great emotions here!
