Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror - Live Orchestra & Undead Classic, Santa Clarita, CA

 

 

Valencia, California, October 22, 2016 - Join the Valencia Symphony Orchestra for their debut performance in a live-to-picture screening of Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. This silent-era masterpiece is the oldest existing vampire movie and one of the most influential horror films of all time. This performance features the West Coast Premiere of the full-length orchestral score written by the composers of the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra, under the direction of Professor of Film Scoring, Sheldon Mirowitz.
 
Nosferatu is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel. Stoker's heirs sued and prevailed, but the studio had declared bankruptcy in the intervening years so the court ordered the film destroyed. There were many copies in circulation so the film survived.
 
The Valencia Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of André Assaiante, is a professional ensemble with members from the greater Los Angeles area. This is their debut performance.
 
The presentation will be at the beautiful 900 seat Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center in Santa Clarita. Tickets for the event are available at the VSO home page (
