“Dracula –the Ballet” is an original show based on “one of the most famous pieces of English literature about the frightening vampire Count from Transylvania,” according to a press release from Sierra Nevada Ballet.
“This original production choreographed by award-winning artist Ananda Bena-Weber to the hauntingly beautiful music of Astor Piazolla draws upon Transylvanian folklore and history and includes drama, intrigue, suspense, sensuality, romance, deception, mystery, horror, death and murder with a touch of Victorian-era eroticism,” reads the release.
The story is based on the novel by Bram Stoker, published in 1897. Attendees are encouraged to wear costumes.
