Both The Tung Auditorium in Liverpool and The Stoller Hall in Manchester have been carefully selected as stunning venues with optimal acoustics for a multi-sensory experience.
The concerts are the debut shows from Northern Film Orchestra — who provide film, television and music recordings for many big clients including ITV. It is also the first time this score will be performed in the UK, following award-winning composer Michael Shapiro’s U.S shows.
Northern Film Orchestra’s Jack Hughes said: “Michael Shapiro’s eerie, atmospheric score for this classic film has been capturing audiences globally and we’re thrilled to debut it here in the UK. It’s going to be an electrifying experience for music lovers and horror movies lovers alike and something very special to do this Halloween.”
The iconic film follows the story of Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) — who succeeded in piecing together body parts of the deceased in an attempt to create life. Frankenstein succeeds in animating his monster (Boris Karloff), but, confused and traumatized, it escapes into the countryside and begins to wreak havoc.
