The Invincible Czars Perform a Live Score to Nosferatu.
Inspired by numerous requests from fans over the years and popular Halloween tour last October, Austin’s Invincible Czars bring their new score for the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu, directed by F.W. Murnau, this winter to the New Parkway Theater.
Nosferatu is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema. As the world’s first vampire movie, it is regarded as the first important horror film–but it was almost erased from the history books when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed.
Nosferatu tells the story of Hutter and Ellen, a couple from the village Wisborg. Hutter travels to Transylvania to sell a piece of property in Wisborg to Count Orlok. Hutter stays in Orlok’s castle only to learn that the Count is a vampire. Orlok purchases a house next to Hutter’s, locks Hutter in the castle and travels to Wisborg. On the way, he manages to possess Hutter’s employer and Ellen and strike the village with an outbreak of the plague. Hutter rushes home to stop him before it’s too late.
The Invincible Czars’ Nosferatu score incorporates violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, singing bowl, tambourine and other hand percussion–all of which is a sight to behold when performed live by only four players!
