Event Details

Come on in, take off your skin, and dance around in your bones.

Friday 15th Sept - Wednesday 18th October

A ride like no other, Victorian Opera and Malthouse Theatre team up with Meow Meow, Paul Capsis, Kanen Breen, Jacqui Dark and Le Gateau Chocolat for the Australian premiere of Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets - a delirious journey through a vivid theatrical landscape that is part gothic, part opera, and all dance with the devil.
Hallucinatory writer William S. Burroughs penned the script, musical magpie Tom Waits wrote the songs and together created this audacious and bizarrely beautiful piece of theatrical magic.
Cry-in-beer ballads meets a meditation on addiction in a tour-de-force that pulls the audience into the dark and decadent depths of the underworld.
The production unites Malthouse Theatre’s Artistic Director Matthew Lutton (Away) with Victorian Opera’s Head of Music, Phoebe Briggs (The Sleeping Beauty).
