Long before the Twilight vampires invaded Hollywood, there was Dracula, the original Transylvanian prince of darkness. Now the undead Count swoops into this atmospheric new work created especially for Carolina Ballet. The program also includes a second world premiere ballet.
Dracula is Principal Guest Choreographer (and two-time Tony Award® nominee) Lynne Taylor-Corbett's new ballet based on Bram Stoker's gothic novel. This Halloween "double feature," set to original music by J. Mark Scearce, also includes The Masque of the Red Death, a new work from Artistic Director Robert Weiss based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story.
