Der Freischütz

Carl Maria Von Weber's

Der Freischütz
(The Marksman)

Melbourne Opera presents a new production of Weber's Romantic masterpiece,the powerful "Der Freischutz/The Marksman",not seen in Melbourne since 1969!

Sung in English,directed by Suzanne Chaundy and conducted by David Kram and Greg Hocking,

"Der Freischutz/The Marksman " is a strong depiction of sinister forces at work in the life of rural Germany containing much memorable music including the famous Overture,the Huntsman's Chorus and the soprano and tenor arias.

Melbourne Opera has assembled a superb international cast led by Jason Wasley,Steven Gallop,Sally Wilson and Andrea Creighton ,combined with the acclaimed Melbourne Opera Chorus and Orchestra in a setting drawing on German Expressionism of the early 20th Century.

 "Der Freischutz/The Marksman" continues Melbourne Opera's commitment to perform less frequently seen German masterpieces, building on the company's successful performances of "Fidelio" and "Rienzi" over the last 2 years.
