Singing was excellent. But the staging, costumes, sets were terrible. Dancing throughout the overture and in the background during a glorious aria of Agathe in the third act were totally distracting and unnecessary. Basic interpretation underlying staging was faulty. Weber's music can stand on its own!
Max, a young hunter, loves Agathe; but in order to win her hand he must succeed at a shooting contest. Kaspar, who has secretly pledged his soul to the Devil, offers Max seven magic bullets which will hit their target regardless of the skill of the marksman. But the seventh bullet belongs to the Devil.
