Commentaires : Based on the German folktale which had been used in Weber’s opera, “Der Freischutz”, this version was a collaboration between theatre director Robert Wilson, musician Tom Waits, and the writer William Burroughs. It contains strong autobiographical elements from Burroughs' real life: he accidentally shot his own wife in a drunken attempt at recreating the William Tell legend. The premiere was in Hamburg in March 1990, and an English language version had played Canada in 1998 and New York in 1999. The 1993 album, with its mixture of Kurt Weill-type operatic and avant-garde sounds was highly successful. This London production, with its quasi-Japanese Kabuki staging, trapezes, symbolism and stylised settings, was the prelude to a world tour, later moving to San Francisco and Sydney. Due to ill health, Marianne Faithfull was forced to withdraw from the production in Australia and her understudy Nigel Richards filled the part.
