Hunter’s Bride is a film opera based on the romantic opera Der „Freischütz“ by Carl Maria von Weber. The pictures of Norwegian director of photography Harald Gunnar Paalgard give a spatial dimension to the unique sound of the London Symphony Orchestra, which recorded in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Performed by renowned opera soloists – Juliane Banse, Michael Konig, Michael Volle, Rene Pape – the film opera was a huge public success in European theatres. Filmed on 35mm film on original locations in Germany, the film opera dramatizes the enchanted tale with stunning images, and surround-sound revives the music for the eyes and the ears of the audience.
