Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)

Gabriel von Eisenstein is about to begin a prison sentence for a small indiscretion. Alfred, an opera singer is serenading Eisenstein's wife, Rosalinde (Joan Sutherland) outside the Eisenstein house. Adele, the maid has just received a letter from her sister, Ida, inviting her to Price Orlofsky's ball. Dr. Falke, preparing a surprise at the ball, convinces Eisenstein to come with him that night and delay his departure for jail until morning. Everyone departs for the ball in disguise ... not before Alfred is mistaken for Eisenstein and dragged off to prison! The comic confusion of infidelity and "mistaken" identity is topped off by Dr. Falke's surprise, a little comedy he arranged called "The Bat's Revenge."

The Barber of Seville, or The Useless Precaution (Il barbiere di Siviglia, ossia L'inutile precauzione) is an opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini with a libretto (based on Pierre Beaumarchais's comedy Le Barbier de Séville) by Cesare Sterbini. The overture, first written for Aureliano in Palmira, is a famous example of Rossini's characteristic Italian style. The première (under the title Almaviva, or the Useless Precaution) took place on February 20, 1816, at the Teatro Argentina, Rome. Rossini's opera follows the first of the plays from the Figaro trilogy, by French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais, while Mozart's opera Le nozze di Figaro, composed 30 years earlier in 1786, is based on the second part of the Beaumarchais trilogy
