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. 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. AlbertaBairTheater.org
