Added by George Parker

Back by popular demand - sell-out sensation The Black Rider: the casting of the magic bullets returns for a limited two-night season especially for the 2017 Christchurch Arts Festival. An opera conceived by Tom Waits, William S. Burroughs, and Robert Wilson, this New Zealand premiere production is directed by Peter Falkenberg and features Arts Foundation laureate Delaney Davidson. With popular and successful recent productions in Barcelona, Berlin, Norway and Denmark, this production is a distinctively New Zealand take on the work. So, roll on up, for a magical, musical carnival ride with Christchurch’s adventurous and ground-breaking theatre company in its home base in The Gym at the Christchurch Arts Centre.A night you will cherish and won’t forget…

"This is a great night of theatre. Stunning performances, superb direction, and a fascinating, original and adventurous theatrical work... How lucky we are in Christchurch to have such a depth and variety of theatrical talent and opportunities"
Tony Ryan, Theatreview
