Dracula: Bloodlines


Back by overwhelming demand, Dayton Ballet is thrilled to return to the Victoria Theatre stage to present the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance Signature Event, Dracula: Bloodlines. Since its 1897 literary debut, the story of Bram Stoker’s Dracula has been told in various forms, but rarely the backstory of this dark villain been explored. Dayton Ballet’s Dracula: Bloodlines delves into the tale before the world’s most famous vampire emerged. 

The horrifying myth of a historical figure named Vlad Tepes, known by many as Vlad the Impaler, a prince in the 15th century in an area near Transylvania, is the perfect place to begin. Act One of Dracula: Bloodlines will focus on this character and the events that led to his transformation into the most well-known vampire in literary history. Act Two will see the emergence of familiar characters of the classic tale of Dracula, including Lucy, Jonathan Harker, Mina, Dr. Van Helsing, and Dracula himself. 

Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke has created a magnificent story that her masterful choreography will bring to life on stage with the full force of the Dayton Ballet professional company of athletic and artistic dancers. Guest vocalists from Dayton Opera will share the stage with Dayton Ballet to spotlight the production with gorgeous vocal resonance.
