Box Office / Ticket Information

A clubhouse near the forest. Here the hunter community maintains its old rituals: young hunter Max has to prove himself at the upcoming test shooting. Only then can he marry his beloved Agathe. Max, however, hasn’t landed a hit in weeks and is worried. Fearing failure, he gets involved with dark forces. Hunter romance, regulars’ table talks and club songs become the starting point for Christoph Marthaler’s ‹Freischütz›. A playful reinvention of the German Singspiel classic with an ensemble of actors and singers. Titus Engel conducts the Basel Chamber Orchestra.
