Awesome Music / Tanz der Vampire

Go To

  • "Carpe Noctem". The way the singing, music and dance combine to tell the story of Alfred's dream is just fantastic. In addition, it really gives the ensemble a chance to shine since none of the main characters are active participants. Furthermore, the choreography, with all its lifting, throwing, and dragging is a wonder to see and must be terrifying to perform. One wrong move...
  • "Totale Finsternis" - the love duet with the right mix of curiosity, lust, fear, giving oneself to the darkness despite it and maybe, just maybe, understanding and romance between the two participants. The portraits singing in the background and watching Sarah's entrance into the castle add to the atmosphere.

  • "Wahrheit" is just as awesome as it is hilarious, since it has Professor Abronsius priding himself in being an Insufferable Genius, while singing at an incredibly fast pace. In fact, he sings so fast that Magda, Rebecca and her husband begin to speed up their chores to match the professor's pace. Complete with an unexpected very high note by Abronsius himself.
  • "Das Gebet (Stärker als wir sind)". A beautiful, solemn, and soaring prayer with every character singing in harmony.
  • "Finale 2. Act" - Yes, the vampires win, nearly every main character note  is one of the undead, but it's hard not rock along to the music of Jim Steinman's "Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young". Similar to "Carpe Noctem", the ensemble (as well as Herbert and Magda) really gets to show off again.


How well does it match the trope?
