This thrilling mystery masterpiece and chilling psycho-drama of blood-lust, is one of horror cinema's most iconic and influential films.
This unauthorised silent expressionist version of Dracula features artistic cinematography and chilling scenes. When the hideous vampire Count Orlok relocates to a new residence he becomes fascinated by his estate agent Hutter's wife.
This wonderfully macabre and highly influential film is presented with live orchestral accompaniment. The composer, Philip McConnell, a Coventry kid now based in Canada, was Artistic Director of the Canadian Sinfonietta and then composer-in-residence with the Toronto Sinfonietta in 2003. He has brought together a talented group of local musicians from Orchestra Da Camera to bring his 2006 score to life.
We start our evening at 7.30 pm with a showing of the Edison Studios’ short film “Frankenstein”, written and directed by J. Searle Dawley in 1910. Then Philip will present extracts from his score, with commentary and explanation. After a short interval, it’s on to the screening of Nosferatu.
