Northwest Ballet Theater’s ‘Dracula’

10/18/2014 - 10/25/2014 - 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm at McIntyre Halle
2501 East College Way

Bram Stoker’s compelling story of Count Dracula has drawn curious audiences for over a century. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form, and his 1876 gothic horror novel has spawned numerous theatrical, film and television interpretations. Created as a two-act ballet, the Irish author’s novel is brought to life by award-winning choreographer John Bishop, combining riveting dramatic performances with ballet elegance and grace. Bishop’s Dracula is a visually lavish production with gothic sets and “steampunk”-style costumes made in Romania.

McIntyre Hall: October 18, 7:30pm

Mount Baker Theatre: October 25, 7:30pm and October 26, 4pm
