Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror*

Before vampires dressed in designer clothes and looked like Robert Pattinson, silent film director F.W. Murnau created the classic 1922 German expressionist retelling of every kid's favorite campfire tale: Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Nosferatu is as haunting as they come and is still recognized today as one of the most chilling vampire films of all time. Settle into Copley Symphony Hall at Jacobs Music Center on Halloween Eve for a screening of the film and live score from organist Russ Peck.

*The San Diego Symphony does not perform on this program.

Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale is at its most lovable when brought to life by Jim Henson’s beloved characters and the San Diego Symphony playing the score live to screen. Surrounded by music and Muppets, not even the miserly Scrooge (Michael Caine) can remain immune to the holiday spirit. As he confronts his past misdeeds and tries to change his ways, this holiday tale promises it’s never too late for compassion to triumph over greed.
