Bregenz Festival 2018: The Hunting Gun


A world premiere at Bregenz Festival: 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. It tells the story of three women, who speak in three letters addressed to the same man, a hunter – his 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. Award-winning Austrian actor and film director Karl Markovics gives his debut as stage director for an opera.
