The iconic German horror masterpiece on the big screen accompanied by The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra of Minnesota. Originating in St. Louis, the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra employs a perspective that films of the Silent Era are not dusty museum pieces, but rather vital and urgently relevant works of art. The ensemble consciously eschews the styles that dominated early film accompaniment--often the popular tunes of the time--in observance of the century of popular music that has since shaped the contemporary ear. Performing all original music, the R&P MPO is a contemporary motion picture orchestra serving a contemporary audience, imbuing the film narratives with a genuinely complementary and supportive aural accompaniment.
