Nosferatu  Oct 2018
Get TicketsGet Tickets

Based on F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent vampire film--a classic of German Expressionist cinema--Dana Gioia's Nosferatu creates a poetic version of the Dracula story in the form of an opera libretto. Written for the neoromantic composer Alva Henderson, the opera Nosferatu has been triumphantly showcased around the U.S. and in New York. Gioia's thrilling version of the vampire myth brings forth the terror of Nosferatu, "the undead," as seen through the eyes of the heroine, a gifted young woman trapped in a tragedy beyond her control.
