Rose Nagelberg Theatre


"Bold and vivid" - The New York Times
"One of the most agile and dynamic companies on New York's indie opera scene" - Opera News  

A New York Times Critic's Pick

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 spookiest scenes in all of opera, Heartbeat’s immersive staging and radical instrumentation take you on a visceral journey deep into the midnight forest – a rare opportunity to experience this masterpiece of German Romanticism.

Due to mature content, this production is not recommended for children ages 12 and under. This production contains haze, strobe lights, loud gunshots (blanks), moments of darkness, and simulated gun violence.

The performance will run two hours and twenty minutes with a 10-minute intermission.
