Nosferatu: An Opera Libretto free pdf "I am the past that feeds upon the present."
"I am the darkness that daylight denies."
"I am the sins that you must inherit--"
"The final truth in a world full of lies."
Based on F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent vampire film--a classic of German Expressionist cinema--Gioia's "Nosferatu" creates a poetic version of the Dracula story in the form of an opera libretto. Written for the neoromantic composer Alva Henderson, the opera "Nosferatu" has been triumphantly showcased around the U.S. and will soon be staged in New York. Giogia'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.
