The first film version of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” and still one of the most horrifying movies ever made. Brilliantly filmed in 1922 by German director F. W. Murnau, “Nosferatu” set the standard for all the great vampire films to come. In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.

Live score performed by Mallarmé Music: ensemble of viola, flute, bassoon, keyboard and percussion.
