Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Reviews favorably a new production of Der Freischutz at the 1988 Ludwigsburg Festival. Criticizes productions that have imposed heavy-handed social allegory or frivolous parody on the folk-like story. Maintains that the Ludwigsburg producer Loriot showed the courage to take the original FREISCHuTZ seriously. Although the seventeenth-century setting is changed to the early nineteenth century, Weber's total conception is faithfully observed. Contains five photographs from the production.
