Nosferatu - a symphony of horror. Organ cinema at the NFM
Filip Presseisen - organ - Narodowe Forum Muzyki, Main Hall
Program Info: The silent film Nosferatu - a symphony of horror directed by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau went down in history as the first significant work in the genre of horror. Frames showing a terrifying vampire wandering in the raw spaces of his castle arouse anxiety to this day, not only among the audience of the younger generation. The story of a disturbing bloodsucker will be enriched with a monumental organ, behind which Filip Presseisen will sit.
Created in 1922, i.e. a hundred years ago, Nosferatu - a horror symphony is one of the first horror films in the history of cinema. It was based on a slightly modified plot Dracula by Bram Stoker. The film tells the story of the vampire Nosferatu, Count Orlok, played by Max Schreck. The actor portrayed the character so authentically that his playing was the subject of fierce discussions and his name became synonymous with evil - the German word schreck means "fear". There were also rumors in the past that Schreck never took off his costume during filming and slept in a wooden box, which caused even greater anxiety around the actor.
The plot tells the story of Thomas Hutter, who, being bid farewell by his beloved wife Ellen, goes on a journey to Transylvania, where he soon arrives at the Orloka Castle. He is planning to offer him to buy a house in Wisborg at the behest of his employer Knock. However, there is no awareness that Knock uses dark magic and that his potential client is a vampire. Upon arriving at his castle, however, he realizes that he is trapped in a formidable, demonic Nosferatu.
