Inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula
TR Warszawa and Teatr Narodowy
Written and directed by Grzegorz Jarzyna

“A vampiric symphony of terror… to the beat of music composed by John Zorn, guru of the New York avant-garde.”
—Rzeczpospolita (Poland)

Terrifying, yet seductive. Blood-thirsty harbingers of death who extend a twisted promise of immortality. The vampire figure has long been defined by Bram Stoker’s classic interpretation, Dracula. In Nosferatu, Poland’s TR Warszawa and Teatr Narodowy dig beneath that veneer to deliver a deeply hypnotic, visually sumptuous new take on the vampire legend. Set to an unnerving score by downtown fixture John Zorn, director Grzegorz Jarzyna’s production suspends us in a liquid-green world of shadowy set pieces, brimming with eroticism, while returning to the legend’s deep reflections on fear and the human need for transgression.

Set design and costumes by Magdalena Maciejewska
Lighting design by Jacqueline Sobiszewski
Video design by Bartek Macias
Music by John Zorn

In coproduction with National Audiovisual Institute, The Barbican, Dublin Theatre Festival, Adelaide Festival and TR Warszawa Foundation.
