THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI
In conjunction with Mallarme Chamber Players, Retro presents The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with original chamber music composed by Eric Schwartz. This film catapulted the movement known as German Expressionism into film history. Director Robert Wiene and a visionary team of designers crafted a nightmare in which light, shadow and substance are abstracted, a world in which a demented doctor and a carnival sleepwalker perpetrate a series of ghastly murders in a small community. Caligari will be presented with live chamber music for oboe, viola, cello, keyboard and soprano composed by Eric Schwartz.
