Heartbeat Opera’s Der Freischütz

About This Show

In this contemporary American rendering of a twisted German fairy tale, a young man’s fear of failing his bride drives him to a portal of darkness. Meanwhile, his town parties on, oblivious to the evil that has been unleashed. With its raunchy drinking songs and sublime arias, Heartbeat’s immersive staging and radical instrumentation take you on a journey deep into the midnight forest – a rare opportunity to experience this masterpiece of German Romanticism.
