Patrick Hahn debuts at Dutch National Opera with the Royal Concertgebouworkest
Patrick Hahn conducts Carl Maria von Weber’s Der Freischutz in Amsterdam having debuts with the Concertgebouworkest, Dutch National Opera & Ballet and Holland Festival. The premiere is on 3 June and eight performances run until 25 June.
Rather than using the opera’s original dialogue, director Kirill Serebrennikov has written a new piece based on Weber’s composition, which will also include music from Tom Waits’ The Black Rider. Patrick Hahn’s versatility as a composer, pianist and arranger will play a vital role in realising this newly created concept.
The production features German tenor Benjamin Bruns and the South African soprano Johanni van Oostrum, as the ideal cast for the love couple Max and Agathe. Soprano Ying Fang interprets a public favorite with Ännche. Patrick Hahn also takes up the role of Samiel!
