Der Freischütz - preview The Age

Der Freischutz (The Marksman), a gothic horror opera long dismissed outside Germany as ludicrous, has ridden changing entertainment fashion to make a rare reappearance in Melbourne.

Its supernatural themes are no longer alien in an entertainment world dominated by magic and monsters, such as the Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, says Sally Wilson, the soprano who sings the heroine.

The Pearl Fishers review - Classic Melbourne

Apart from the sheer pleasure of being transported by Bizet’s fabulous music, experiencing different casts and witnessing the increasing assurance of some of the performers were among the benefits of repeated attendance at Melbourne Opera’s season of The Pearl Fishers.
