Weber: “Abu Hassan”
Vanderhoef Studio Theatre, Mondavi Center

In this comedic short opera, written by Carl Maria von Weber in 1811, Abu Hassan and his wife, Fatime, are desperate to get out of debt (an outstanding loan to lender Omar) and choose to jointly fake their own deaths in order to collect money. It is no surprise that Weber is known for his operas (Freischütz and Oberon among them), and that his musical style evoked Mozart. Weber’s cousin, Constanze, was married to Mozart, and Weber was appointed by the King of Saxony as the head of the Dresden Opera.
