Excerpts from Weber's opera, Der Freischütz
“To protect nature is to protect ourselves.” In 1971, Hungary organised a monumental international hunting exhibition, supported in part by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE). The 50th anniversary of the 1971 expo provides the perfect occasion for continuing the tradition in 2021. As Budapest is located in the centre of Hungary, the World of Hunting and Nature Exhibition will be focused in the capital city, especially as regards its cultural events. And since the guests are arriving to Eiffel Art Studios, the opportunity to play a selection of the symphonic and opera masterpieces that were inspired by hunting in the course of the centuries of music in Europe is a natural given.
