    Yes, and this opera has risen to be among my favorites. I listened to it all weekend--3 different recordings.

    A good read is The Fatal Marksman by Johann August Apel. This story is quite interesting and is the basis for Der Freischutz.

    Looking forward to this production from La Scala with Günther Groissböck if/when it comes to DVD.

    Fritz, what was it about the Wolf's Glen scene that you found objectionable?

    Not sure how to put it into words but I generally avoid horror films and such, particularly those about devils and demons. However, the Wolf Glen scene is essential to Der Freischutz and is not the main focus of the opera, but rather a necessary side issue that makes the story happen.

    Hey, I just read in a Der Freischutz CD booklet that the white flowers the hermit gave Agathe are what protected her from the Devil's bullet killing her. Previously, I had thought that Samiel had simply double crossed Caspar. but perhaps it was a little of both.
