It seems that the precise date of Theodor Freiherr von Schacht’s birth is unknown to us. Of noble birth and having a title of Baron, he studied in Stuttgart and Wetzlar. After completing his studies he finds himself attached to the Court of Prince Thurn-und-Taxis in Regensburg as a courtier. There he was appointed in 1773 the Music Director to the court and was instructed with the construction and establishing of an Italian opera. In 1790 he was made a member of the princely Privy Council and was awarded in 1796 for his services around the court music with pay of an honorary lifetime pension.
