The Black Rider
"Take off your skin and dance around in your bones."
...visually stunning, perversely funny and wickedly Gothic musical...Winnipeg Free Press
It is a wickedly sensuous world where nothing is what it seems: the devil sings, the animals laugh and the walls are painted with blood. A poetic and fantastical folk-tale comes to life in the form of a bizarre and macabre musical, created by rock icon Tom Waits, beat poet William S. Burroughs and theatrical innovator Robert Wilson.
To win the hand of his true love, Wilhelm makes a dangerous pact: a pact with the devil himself. He eagerly accepts the devil’s enchanted bullets, taking aim for a shot that just can’t miss!
