Press Release – The Music


Wilhelm, a lowly clerk, and Käthchen, the daughter of a well to do forester, wish to get married. But Wilhelm must first demonstrate the brawny skills of a huntsman for Käthchen's father to approve. What to do? Along comes Pegleg with an offer Wilhelm cannot resist. Director Mark Jackson comments: “The Black Rider is a fairytale for adults about how fear and self-doubt can lead us to sell out our integrity for a shortcut to our hopes and dreams.”

Content Advisory

The Black Rider is 1 hour 50 minutes long with no intermission, and contains strobe effects, live and recorded gunshots, and some disturbing imagery.
