Be transported back in time to Transylvania and experience love, death and seduction in this riveting ballet based on Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 horror novel Dracula.  Since its premiere in 1991, Dracula has resonated with audiences across the Southeast. This year marks the 20th performing year for this haunting, sensuous ballet.

Paired with Savannah’s vast cultural landscape and haunting beauty, this seductive and spellbinding performance is not to be missed. The performance promises dazzling visuals designed by Columbia City Technical Director K.
