This contemporary staging from La Scala in October 2017 is made by the German theatre director Matthias Hartmann. The cast includes the sought-after sopranos Julia Kleiter (Agathe) and Eva Liebau (Ännchen), the Viennese tenor Michael Kraus (Max) and the Viennese bass Günther Groissböck (Kaspar). The Orchestra e Coro del Teatro all Scala is conducted by Myung-Whun Chung who "achieved a perfect balance between the realistic and the supernatural aspects of the work." (Bachtrack)
