Read more about the opera Freischütz

The Hamburg State Opera was the first foreign opera company to visit the Edinburgh Festival, and brought six productions - five classics of the German repertoire, Fidelio, Die Zauberflöte, Der Freischütz, Die Meistersinger, and Der Rosenkavalier, as well as giving the British stage premiere of Hindemith's Mathis der Maler. Many of the leading singers were famous at the time and remained well known through the release of many recordings from Bayreuth and other sources.
