The most important horror film of the silent era, Nosferatu tells the story of Hutter and Ellen, a couple from the village of 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.

Using a mix of acoustic and electric instruments, The Invincible Czars provide a live soundtrack for the 1922 silent film, making the century-old movie actually scary for modern audiences.  Violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, voices and vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, piano and percussion all play prominent roles in the score and are a sight to behold when performed live by only four or five players!

Fans and attendees are encouraged to dress for the Halloween season at these shows, even when it's not close to Halloween.

"(The Invincible Czars' soundtrack for Nosferatu is) a brilliantly realized wedding of contemporary musical sensibility and technology with early 20th century cinema."
