About Der Freischütz

How badly do you need to win? Would you sell your soul? In this contemporary American rendering of a twisted German fairy tale, a young man’s fear of failing his future bride drives him to a portal of darkness. Meanwhile, his small town parties on, oblivious to the evil unleashed in its midst. In this vertiginous landscape full of sound and fury, "the seventh bullet is the Devil's." With its raunchy drinking songs, sublime arias, and one of the scariest scenes in all of opera, Heartbeat’s immersive staging and radical instrumentation take you on a visceral journey deep into the midnight forest of American nightmares – a rare opportunity to experience this masterpiece of German Romanticism.
