Proudly presented by Suncorp
It’s love at first bite. Dracula, the unearthly, seductive story inspired by Bram Stoker’s dark love story is presented by Queensland Ballet. Be taken on a journey across centuries into a dark world where true love never dies.
After two sell-out seasons in Western Australia, this neo-classical production will finally be unleashed on the Queensland stage. Audiences will be left captivated with provocative set and costume design in a modern interpretation of this blood thirsty love story.
Stoker’s gothic tale has become legendary, inspiring countless works of popular fiction, film, television and musical theatre. Unnerving and, at the same time, seducing for the modern psyche, Dracula follows the love-tortured vampire as he pursues Mina, who the Count believes to be the reincarnation of his dead wife.
Celebrated Artistic Director and Choreographer Krzystof Pastor has created his ballet to the atmospheric music of Wojciech Kilar, originally composed for the 1992 film starring Gary Oldman. Visually mesmerising, the production is accompanied by dramatic lighting by Jon Buswell and meticulous costume and set design by Phil R. Daniels and Charles Cusick Smith.
This spellbinding ballet will take you on a journey across centuries into a dark world where true love never dies.
