  1. We have purchased tickets for this production! I've always loved Carl Maria von Weber's music and this production, while also brought to the stage at a most opportune time in our culture, also promises to be intriguing and beautifully sung

  2. This is sad, given that the original music of the Freischütz is some of the most beautiful to come out of the 19th century ! With lesser artists and lesser works, often they can be improved on. With greater artists and greater works, they usually can't.
