Operas arranged for voice and keyboard provided amateur musicians with a means of studying, playing, and hearing opera in private surroundings. Many examples of vocal scores for contemporary operas are present in the Archive. One of the most successful operas of this period, Carl Maria von Weber’s Der Freischütz was first performed in Berlin in 1821, and was soon presented on major opera stages throughout Europe and beyond. This early vocal score, with a title page illustration of a scene from the opera, was owned by Princess Augusta, whose signature appears on the cover.
