Dracula with Live Score @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019

Saturday, 17 August 2019, 8.00pm

As darkness falls on a summer evening, why not cool down with this spine-chilling screening of Dracula? Released in 1931, and starring the legendary Bela Lugosi as the thirsty count, Tod Browning’s version of the horror classic is one of the last great films of the silent era.

This special screening features a bone-tingling live score composed and performed by Seán Mac Erlaine (reeds/electronics/prepared piano) and Matthew Nolan (guitar/synth) in collaboration with Eivind Aarset (guitar) and Sharon Phelan (voice). Filled with haunting vocals and nerve-shredding guitar riffs, this thrilling live show guarantees to cool the blood on a warm August night.

The score was commissioned by the Bram Stoker Festival in 2016.
