Programme Note
Carl Maria von Weber Der Freischuetz ,
Synopsis:
Der Freischütz was highly influential in the development of German opera. Its Romantic subject matter and use of the reminiscence motif paved the way for Wagner’s operatic revolution later in the century. Cuno, the head ranger, is due to retire and Max hopes to win the shooting competition which will enable him to replace him and marry his daughter Agathe. His rival Kaspar promises to help Max in the contest by forging seven magic bullets which he says will travel in whichever direction the marksman wants. But Kaspar has sold his soul to the devil and his real aim is to trick Max into take over the horrible consequences of his deadly contract.
