Galway Music Residency in association with the Huston School of Film & Digital Media present a screening of the silent film, Nosferatu, with a score performed live by Con Tempo Quartet

Thursday, October 26, 7.30pm, Huston Main

If you’re looking for something a little different this Halloween, the Galway Music Residency has just the thing! This unique event, in association with NUI Galway, is sure to give you that spooky feeling. This classic 1922 silent film was the first onscreen interpretation of the story of Dracula and, though banned at the time for copyright infringements, it has gone down in cinematic history as one of the greatest horror films ever made. 

While this great classic is being screened next Thursday, 26th October,  the Galway ConTempo Quartet will perform a very special live score composed in the 1990s to provide a fresh sound-scape for such a timeless piece of film. It was composed by French specialist Baudime Jam in 2002 for the Prima Vista Quartet which has performed it in numerous times internationally. The score has since become part of the repertoire of a number of other renowned string quartets including the Debussy Quartet.

Tickets for this unique event cost €10/€5 and can be purchased at Nosferatu Live or on the door.
