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)

A fowler, who could never hit a single bird, sells his soul to the Devil in order to become a Freischütz. The Devil was to return in seven years, but must always be able to name the animal at which the fowler was shooting. Failure to do so would nullify the agreement. After that day, the fowler never missed a target. When the seven years had almost passed the fowler and his wife devise a way to cheat the Devil. She stripped herself, covered herself with molasses, and then covered herself with feathers. She then hopped about in a field where her husband was talking to the Devil. The Devil told him to fire at the bird, but the fowler first asked him to name the creature. The Devil could not and vanished with a whiff of brimstone
