Nosferatu the Vampire
A rock opera
The musical | Buy the CD
The recording features Phantom of the Opera stars Peter Karrie and Claire Moore in the lead roles as well as Mario Frangoulis, Mark Wynter, Barry James and Simon Burke. 25 tracks. 68 minutes.

"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." - Mike Gibb, Masquerade
