New Mexico Ballet Company's Dracula

Popejoy Hall

Yummy!
Yummy!
Pat Berrett

Graceful blood-suckers in capes will prance and dance across the stage when the New Mexico Ballet Company brings its Halloween extravaganza, Dracula, to Popejoy Hall on Friday, Oct. 31, and Saturday, Nov. 1. With over 60 dancers, over a dozen different classical and contemporary musical numbers, great costumes, creepy special effects, monsters and a high-flying, long-in-the-tooth protagonist, this performance should be a ghoulish delight for ballet fans of all ages. Tickets are $12, $18 and $25. The audience is encouraged to wear costumes. Prizes for the best costume will be awarded during intermission. (I advise wearing a thick scarf as well.) To order tickets, call 925-5858.
