Dracula

Imagine a world where you can only go out after dark, where you feel a constant hunger for human blood but where for all eternity you will appear young and beautiful. Welcome to the world of Dracula.

A creature who should inspire repulsion in every living thing but who has seduced countless generations, Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire lives on in this extraordinary ballet.

The dark tale of the immortal Count is played out through Northern Ballet’s unique blend of sensuous dancing, gripping theatre and gothic sets and costumes.

If you think you know what to expect from ballet, think again. This is ballet with a dramatic bite that will leave you thirsty for more - don’t miss your chance to experience it.

Features music by Schnittke, Rachmaninov, Part, Daugherty.
