Nosferatu the Vampire
A rock opera

Potted Reviews
Following
are extracts from various reviews

"The vigorous, wide-ranging music of Nosferatu resembles a lusty love child of a blood wedding between Carmina Burana and Les Miserables, orchestrated and performed with an onward driving force which almost recalls Bernstein in its progressive, narrative energy. Taylor may be about to achieve for vampires something of what Spielberg did for dinosaurs."
- Margaret Sillwood, Kent and Sussex Courier.

"Nosferatu is dark and sombre yet with an inherent beauty - eerie, ethereal and passionate. The real fascination proves to be the depth and grandeur of the abundance of haunting melodies...Bernard J. Taylor has once again displayed his exceptional talent. Surely it cannot be long before that talent is fully rewarded and recognised."
- Mike Gibb, Masquerade, Issue 19, 1995.

"One of Taylor's trademarks is fine ballads, and once again he does not disappoint with what I consider are three outstanding examples. But there are lots of other good things to be savoured throughout this excellent recording." - Terry Wardrope, Words and Music.

"It sounds like no show you have ever heard before. It is certainly the most original show music I have heard. It is very different in style to Taylor's previous work and any other show on the West End or Broadway, and is likely to have far wider appeal than most musicals."
- CD, Beneath The Mask (the journal of the Phantom of the Opera Appreciation Society)

"A sweeping melodic score which is missing from most new shows."
- Baz Bamigboye, Daily Mail.

"This is very much a rock score with strong beat numbers alternating with romantic ballads." - Michael Darvell, What's On.

"The musical has a number of good songs. If you like full-blooded vampires with a definite melodramatic edge then this disc is a must-have." - Tina Rath, Journal of the Vampyre Society.
