Get into the Halloween spirit! The Tampa Ballet Theatre returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall this October to perform Dracula
, a three-act ballet based on Bram Stoker’s gothic horror book, with music by composer Wojciech Kilar, the composer of the 1992 movie. The story of Dracula
follows Johnathan Harker, Mina Murray and Lucy Westerna in their horrifying encounters with wolves, vampires and the count himself. Dracula is a disturbing and sensual story about love, death and the undead.“It is very important to me to tell the original story, the way it was meant to be told,” said artistic director and choreographer of Dracula
, Lindsay Clark, “Because I have no right to change this wonderful work of art. I respect Stroker as an artist and his original story as a work of art.”
