The young composer Max is due to marry Agathe, but before his wedding he must finish his opera on which he has been working for quite some time. Despite all his efforts, Max is plagued by worries that he will fail to complete the piece and so makes almost no progress. Visions and hallucinations haunt him, the boundaries between dream and reality seem to blur and overlap. Caspar tries to persuade him finally to give in to the hidden and dark creative powers within him and so overcome his inability to write; Caspar’s efforts are finally rewarded. Max first breaks away from Agathe’s world and seeks out the nightmarish Wolf’s Glen. Invoking Samiel, in a kind of creative ecstasy he welcomes his dark creative potential which he now draws on eagerly.

Agathe is beset with doubts about her future with Max. Together with Ännchen, she feels hope and longing but also sees fearful visions. However, when Max, pressed from all sides, dares to take the final step and plays the seventh inspiration he came by at the Wolf’s Glen, as if by a miracle it remains intact.

Before the assembled company, Max finally admits that he has spent time in the Wolf’s Glen. The punishment imposed by Ottokar is reduced by the seemingly superior Hermit to one trial year in which Max must continue the composition of his opera. Max is once again torn between the bright and dark forces within him ...
