BRANDON – September 12, 2016 – Brandon Ballet’s 23rd season opens with the highly anticipated return of Dracula – Presented by Brandon Ballet. This is the 3rd annual telling of Bram Stoker’s classic gothic horror story and performed by the professional, pre-professional and training dancers of Brandon Ballet. Dracula is a spellbinding story of the nocturnal Count and his quest for power and love.
Audiences will be mesmerized as they venture into the dark and eerie world of the infamous Count Dracula. With the combination of dramatic choreography by Octavio Martin, Artistic Director for Brandon Ballet, dazzling costumes, and thrilling sets, Dracula delivers danger and sensuality with story-enhancing sound effects. The dramatic music and cinematic scenery will captivate audience members from curtain rise to curtain fall.
“Brandon Ballet is excited to once again present Dracula to our community. Dracula is a unique full-length ballet in that it is radically different from tutus and classical dance,” Artistic Director Octavio Martin said. “While it does demonstrate the dancers’ classical technique, there is also a great deal of focus on characterization, music and theatrical effects. This production – full of tremendous dramatic content and great moments of terror and love – will challenge and invigorate our dancers to create three-dimensional characters to tell the haunting tale of Count Dracula.”
You will not want to miss this treat. Just in time for Halloween – perfect for a night out with your own little goblins!
