WA BALLET - DRACULA
6 - 22 September 2018
His Majesty's Theatre, Perth with West Australian Symphony Orchestra
Presenting yet another World Premiere, we are proud to bring to His Majesty’s stage, a dramatic neo-classical ballet, telling the most famous story of when darkness meets love – Dracula. Performed to a specially created “libretto” (a storyline), our adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel invites you to follow Dracula, whose lonely soul is determined to reunite with his lost love, Mina – and in doing so begins a reign of terror and seduction, draining the life from those around her to get what he so desires. Be transfixed by this tale of forbidden passion.
In a major coup, we are excited to be working in close collaboration with one of the world’s most highly awarded and exciting choreographers. With more than 50 ballet works to his name, Krzysztof Pastor is a major force in the ballet world today. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience his work.
