A naïve hunter travels to a crossroads in the dead of night to conjure the devil. He’s willing to bargain almost anything in exchange for magic silver bullets that will never miss their mark. But the devil makes cunning deals—just when you think you can have it all, you may have unwittingly given it all away.Who else could write a raucously macabre musical about a pact with the devil, but Tom Waits and William S. Burroughs? Cry-in-beer ballads meet 1920s jazz and Burroughs’ gritty beat poetry, to make a carnival of Faustian pacts. A parable of addiction, The Black Rider is a tour-de-force that pulls the audience into the dark and decadent depths of the underworld.Malthouse Theatre and Victoria Opera team up to create a theatrical spectacle with Meow Meow, Paul Capsis and Kanen Breen in a raucous and anarchic production that is part vaudeville, part opera, and all dance with the devil.
