Alexander Titel: “The production was conceived even before the dramatic period that all of humanity is still going through - the COVID-19 pandemic. When the artist and conductor and I were talking about the fact that a person is more and more moving into the virtual world, and sometimes confuses the virtual and real worlds, we could not imagine that soon we would leave for this very virtual world for many months. The heroes of our performance are real people, our contemporaries, who are engaged in the development of computer games. They come up with the "Der Freischütz" game. It seems to us that the opera can "talk" about how the online and offline worlds collide as a result, are they interchangeable ... "
