PSYCHO with orchestra

A symphonic night at the movies.

Horror movie accompanied by a live orchestra. The Göteborg Opera will be transformed into a movie theatre for this screening of Hitchcock’s hair-raising masterpiece. 

Shown in English with Swedish subtitles.

Experience Hitchcock's masterpiece with a live orchestra as The Göteborg Opera is transformed into a movie theatre! Alfred Hitchcock's thriller Psycho, from 1960, is the grandfather of all psychological horror films. To say that Psycho terrified audiences is an understatement – it has sex, violence, thrills and terrifying surprises – and is a film which will still chill your blood.

Janet Leigh plays Marion, an office clerk who checks into a remote, run-down motel: The Bates Motel, run by Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a shy young man who is domineered by his mother. Several of the most classic scenes of the horror movie genre can be found here, and the film was pivotal for the development of the genre.

Bernard Herrmann's dark, rich and often nightmarish music (screeching violins!) draws us into the psyche of Norman Bates: having our orchestra live on stage brings the genius of his score to center stage. 

The music magnifies the chills – would we even remember the movie without its music?
