Dracula Performed By Brandywine Ballet Company

Beginning this weekend, October 24-26, Bram Stoker’s famous DRACULA is set to be performed by the Brandywine Ballet Company. It’s the story of a forbidden Victorian romance between beautiful Mina and the beguiling Count Dracula set amidst eerily lit castles and sun-drenched terraces. The tragic story unfolds with impeccable soloing, sensual pas de deux, and exhilarating ensemble dancing. Tantalizing costumes, sword battles, artful makeup and an emotionally moving musical score make Dracula ghoulish fun for all. Performances will take place at Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall.
