With striking imagery that has burrowed into the dark corners of the public's psyche for the past century, F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent classic Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror is as immortal as its iconic antagonist. The silver screen’s first vampire—played by Max Schreck as a twisted, clawed and fanged creature completely unlike Bela Lugosi's subsequent urbane portrayal of Dracula—continues to influence cinematic horror to this day. 

Since the original orchestral score by Hans Erdmann is largely lost, Nosferatu has afforded a host of musicians the opportunity to re-score the classic. LA Opera is proud to add its own Matthew Aucoin to that esteemed list. The company's new Artist in Residence will create and conduct a new score for chamber orchestra, incorporating composers both from Murnau's time and from the 19th century, as well as new music composed by Aucoin himself.
