Texas Ballet Theater is calling all the “children of the night.”
TBT will present Ben Stevenson’s Dracula at Bass Performance Hall, Oct. 16 through 18. The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will accompany the production set to Franz Liszt’s gothic score arranged by John Lanchbery.
The adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire tale transports the audience to the Transylvanian village where the undead Count seduces his victims. This theatrical ballet features flying vampire brides, a ghastly coach that winds on and off stage and Dracula’s maneuverings of a 30-pound, 25-foot cape.
Dracula’s 18 brides are costumed in period-centric attire: each has a custom-made bridal gown and wig designed to represent the time period during which took the victim as a bride.
