Back by popular demand and just in time to kick off the Halloween season, Patricia Dickinson Wells brings Bram Stoker’s macabre novel Dracula back to the stage for two breathtaking performances of a fully realized dance rendition, Dracula, A Love Story. Festival Ballet Albuquerque, also known for its critically acclaimed productions of Firebird BalletThe Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of EnchantmentBilly the KidCoppelia, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, performs a truly 21st century version of the 19th century love story that continues to capture the imaginations of young and old alike. “Dracula meets Lestat” in this dramatic vampire production, featuring choreography by Patricia Dickinson Wells, sets by John Malolepsy, lighting by Eric Kennedy, lavish costumes, and flying trickery provided by Flying by Foy from Las Vegas. The powerful choreography, classical music, eerie effects, and unsurpassed love story spanning centuries all combine to pack plenty of scares into a production not to be missed—a sophisticated original ballet set in an elegant, dark, and brutal portrayal of Stoker’s timeless tale of love, blood-lust, loss, and redemption.  See it if you dare!
