MANCHESTER - Award-winning composer and Burr and Burton Academy graduate, Andrew Alden, brings an exciting new score to the iconoclast vampire film "Nosferatu" (1922). The music features the use of electric guitars, world instruments, percussion, piano, strings, and synthesizers. The silent film will be presented before live audiences while the ensemble plays the textural and original score onstage.

"Nosferatu" is regarded as the greatest vampire movie of all time. The film was shot in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania and in Germany at the beginning of film's history. The score compliments the horror of the film and the classic story of Dracula with the sensibilities of chamber music and the distinct edge of Rock. The production of Nosferatu is one not to be missed.

The film will be screened at the Riley Center for the Arts at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13. Admission is $5 at the door.
