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

Sung in English, directed by Suzanne Chaundy and conducted by David Kram and Greg Hocking, Der Freischütz/The Marksman is steeped in folklore and depicts sinister forces at work in the life of rural Germany.

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.

Director Suzanne Chaundy has chosen to stage the story through the lens of German Expressionism of the early 20th Century.

Using viscous and textural imagery to represent the landscape of Wolf’s Glenn, Zoe Scoglio’s projections suggest the moody landscape through brightly coloured wet paint in various styles and states. With high contrast lighting and distorted shadows, the images will be projected on to an angular set design, to evoke a sense of the mysterious, magical and ominous nature during the Wolf’s Glenn scenes.

The opera contains much memorable music including the famous Overture, the Huntsman's Chorus and the soprano and tenor arias.

Der Freischütz/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.
