Rescheduled from Hurricane Sandy Weekend in October
“We are about to unfold the story of Frankenstein, a man of science who sought to create a man after his own image without reckoning upon God. It is one of the strangest tales ever told. It deals with the two great mysteries of creation - life and death.”
Introduction to Frankenstein
UD Chamber Orchestra presents Michael Shapiro’s film score to Universal Pictures’ 1931 Frankenstein, starring Boris Karloff. Shapiro, conductor of the Chappaqua Orchestra, composed the score to be played along with the film, blending live music with the story on screen, and giving audiences an entirely new way to experience this classic horror movie.
Professor Charles E. Robinson, from UD's Department of English, starts the evening with a talk about the story of Frankenstein. Dr. Robinson is one of the country's leading experts on Mary Shelley's novel and has presented numerous papers and lectures and is widely published on the topic. He has also appeared in programs for A&E, the History Channel and the BBC.
