NOSFERATU
October 31, 2017

Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center

 

“Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror” (1922) was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” Nearly all copies of the film were destroyed under court order, but one print survived and came to be regarded as a masterpiece. Celebrate Halloween by experiencing this bizarre and chilling silent film classic on the giant Helzberg Hall screen with live thundering accompaniment by organist Dorothy Papadakos on the Julia Irene Kauffman Casavant Organ. If you liked last season’s sold-out “Phantom of the Opera” silent film with organ concert, you’ll love “Nosferatu.” Costumes encouraged!
