Classic Silent Film "Nosferatu"
with Live Score by Bassist Tom Peters
October 21, 2011

Bassist Tom Peters provides the live musical score for the classic silent film “Nosferatu.” Director F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) stands as one of the most important films to come out of pre-World War II Germany. After almost 90 years, it still delivers chills!

Nosferatu was the brainchild of artist and occultist Albin Grau, and was billed as the first truly occult film. Filmed on locations in Slovakia and Germany, it is freely adapted from Bram Stocker’s Dracula. Because Grau never bothered to acquire the rights to Stocker’s novel, Nosferatu was the subject of a lawsuit with the Stocker estate. All prints were ordered to be destroyed. Fortunately, two survived, allowing us to enjoy this wonderfully creepy film today.

The digitally restored print by the F.W. Murnau Foundation gives audience members a chance to experience the film in a way that adheres closely to the director’s vision.
