Weber: The Magic Bullets (Der Freischütz)
Finneytown Performing Arts Center
Cincinnati, OH
Share this event:

An opera from 1821 about a community obsessed with guns.

Weber's Der Freischütz tells the story of Max, a young man who must succeed in a shooting contest in order to marry his fiancée Agathe. His community has tied his sense of masculinity to his skill with firearms, and the resulting pressure drives him to seek magic bullets that never miss. But the bullets come at a steep price.

Featuring full orchestral accompaniment from the award-winning Queen City Opera orchestra, and the premiere of a new critical edition of Weber's masterful score, recently published by Schott Music in Mainz, Germany. Sung in the original German, with projected English translations, and English dialogue between the musical numbers.

There will be a presentation on evidence-based approaches to preventing gun violence one hour before each performance.

Conducted by QCO Artistic Director Isaac Selya.
Stage Direction by Rebecca Herman.
Production Design by Lizzy DuQuette.
Lighting Design and Technical Direction by Larry Csernik.
Costume Design by Joy Galbraith of Costume Gallery Newport.
