The world premiere of his new score for Nosferatu was an invigorating, energetic experience. A twelve-piece ensemble performed it, and the instrumentation includes the rare use of a cimbalom. That's a large concert hammered dulcimer that gives a "foreign" sound to the music. To my knowledge, the only score of Thibaudeau's that has received a proper video release is The Phantom of the Opera. Would love his scores for Metropolis and Nosferatu to receive a similar treatment someday. The rest of the photos show a trip to Germany I took a few years ago, where I had the chance to explore all the German outdoor locations from the 1922 film Nosferatu.
