In the summer of 1816, a group including Lord Byron and Percy & Mary Shelley kept themselves entertained through a storm by creating stories for each other, a contest which produced “Frankenstein” and a short story by John Polidori, “The Vampyre.” This tale of a vampire who must murder three virgins in order to stay alive for another year inspired a play, which in turn inspired the first opera by German composer Heinrich Marschner.
Maestro Leon Botstein shares the stories behind the music in a lively 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A at 1 PM in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Free for all ticket holders.
