Koukol leaves a bundle for Sarah in front of the inn. Alfred appears and declares his love
for her. She responds but is eager to open the bundle. Having got rid of him, she opens it
to discover that Count Krolock has sent her some red boots. She dreams of dancing at a
great ball, then runs off into the forest. Alfred raises the alarm and Chagal hurries in
pursuit of his daughter.

9th Scene: CHAGAL'S INN
The Professor is trying to cheer the dejected villagers when Chagal is carried in,
apparently frozen. The Professor instantly recognizes the bite marks on Chagal's throat.
Once the villagers have left, he proposes to save the innkeeper's soul by driving a stake
through his heart but Rebecca restrains him.
Later that night, Magda sneaks downstairs
for a look at Chagal. He wakes up and bites her, then covers her with a cloth and hides
under the table. The Professor and Alfred return. They're just about to impale Chagal
when he offers to guide them to the Count's castle.
