Nosferatu

Story

Survivors of a dying city recount the story of Jonathan and Mina Harker and their fateful encounter with the brooding aristocrat Count Dracula. Inspired by the German films of the same name, Nosferatu is a meditation on love, desire and mortality.

With three actors, three musicians and three ladders,Nosferatu featured the company’s first live musical score by Jason MacIsaac. Current Zuppa Circus director Alex McLean, actor Susan Leblanc-Crawford and musician (now composer) David Christensen also had their Zuppa Circus debuts in Nosferatu.
