October 31st: The Silent Classic Film Der Golem with a Live Musical Score
Halloween Movie Event! Hesperus performs live musical accompaniment to the classic 1920 silent film Der Golem.
In the Jewish ghetto of 16th century Prague, Rabbi Löw gazes at the stars and sees portents of a great disaster to befall his community. Soon after this, the Holy Roman emperor, Luhois orders the jews to be expelled from the city. The Rabbi creates a clay golem as a protector for his people. He summons the demon Astaroth to learn the key to bringing the clay creature to life. The Golem saves the Jews from expulsion, but the lumbering creature is not easily controlled and when he runs loose, the whole of Prague is in danger of destruction.

Hesperus is an eclectic early-music group whose repertoire spans the European medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods, often fused with Appalachian, gospel, blues and more.
