October 4, 2004
October seems the perfect month to present the tale of Nosforatu, the undead. The
shadows grow longer. The days grow shorter. A darkness descends.
The story of Dracula has captivated our imaginations for over a century. We are drawn
to the battle between good and evil. We are tempted by our romantic fascination with
the idea of eternal life, no matter what the cost.
Dracula represents a powerful evil. He seduces his victims with his charm and unearthly
powers, yet objectifies those he most desires. It is a chilling seduction. The vampire
plays a lone hand. It is his isolation that leads to his undoing. Ultimately, love and
community triumph over the forces of darkness.
Tonight, there is a chill in the air as we begin our story. Dogs will bark, bats will fly and
wolves will howl.
Sit back. Try to relax. The wolves are but the children of the night. “What beautiful
music they make.”
