ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET - DRACULA

Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 8:00 pm

Main Stage $48

Sponsored by Jefferson’s Ferry Lifecare Retirement Community

Enjoy one of the oldest ballet companies in North America as Royal Winnipeg

Ballet returns to Staller Center for a full-length contemporary ballet of Bram

Stoker’s

Dracula

. Just the name Dracula invokes the horror and fascination of the

classic novel. The ballet tells the story of vampire Count Dracula's attempt to move

from Transylvania to England so he may find new blood and spread the undead

curse. The battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by

Professor Abraham Van Helsing ensues. Complete with flying bats, dancing

gargoyles, and mysterious transformations, this adaptation, choreographed by

Mark Godden, is ballet at its finest.

If you were there for the crowd-pleasing performance of the Royal Winnipeg

Ballet in

Moulin Rouge

at Staller Center in 2012, you know to put this show on

your calendar.

“How good and thoughtful he is;

the world seems full of

good men

even if there are

monsters

in it.”

– Bram Stoker,

Dracula
