Semi-stage / Brussels, Vienna, London - 2018/2019
Carl Maria von Weber
German Romantic opera began with Der Freischütz, a landmark in the history of music. Admired by Beethoven, the work became a source of inspiration for a whole generation of composers. Der Freischütz owed its success to the poetic power of the fantasy world it depicts and to its masterly scoring, harnessing the beauty of expressive orchestration with theatrical impact.
"Just a hop, skip and a Sprung down the Linke Wienzeile, the Theater an der Wien recently presented a semi-staged version by Olivier Fredj which was much more faithful to Johann Friedrich Kind's creepy folk-lore libretto. With limited set-structure, but utilizing period costumes and clever lighting, Anglo / French Fredj adroitly managed to capture the Satanic sorcery of the narrative with plenty of scary images plus hunting rifles which actually fired.
