LA Opera Off Grand presents Vampyr + Halloween After-Party
8PM – Wed Oct 31, 2018
The Theatre at Ace Hotel, Los Angeles
Menace lurks behind every shadow in a remote village filled with secrets. Our annual Halloween mash-up of opera and cinema returns to the spectacular Theatre at Ace Hotel with filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer’s surreal 1932 masterwork, one of the most unsettling vampire movies ever made. Composer Joby Talbot creates a compelling new score for chamber orchestra and singers, performed live with a rare screening of this cinematic gem, underestimated for decades but now regarded as an important landmark of the horror genre.
Music: Joby Talbot*
Conductor: Matthew Aucoin
Film director: Carl Theodor Dreyer
Original film release: May 6, 1932, in Germany
