Behind the scenes - Der Freischütz
14 July 2022
In a rehearsal room, a group of singers is working on Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischütz: an opera about an ambitious huntsman Max who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agatha. Terrified that he will miss his shot, Max makes a pact with sinister forces. In this unique and unconventional production, director Kirill seeks parallels between Der Freischütz and the opera world, in which ambition, fear of failure and superstition feature just as prominently.
