“Great moments: world premiere of Thomas Larcher’s opera Das Jagdgewehr at the Bregenz Festival.” (Wiener Zeitung)

Thomas Larcher has adapted Yasushi Inoue’s best-seller The Hunting Gun for his first opera, with a libretto by Austrian Book Prize winner Friederike Gösweiner. Austrian actor and film director Karl Markovics makes his debut as stage director for an opera. The story tells of three women, who speak in three letters addressed to the same man: the hunter’s wife, his lover, and his lover’s daughter. As the women react to the revelation of illicit love, the hunter’s life is laid bare.

“The Austrian composer’s first opera is inventive.” (The Times)

“A clear, powerful text, some striking imagery and a luminous score of great beauty and originality ensure this opera’s success.” (The Observer)
