A bit to be desired…
For an early Valentine's day surprise I acquired these opening night tickets for my beau and I (his first ballet). After Act 1, we see Dracula, who lived up to his role as 'leading man'... Act 2 quickly passed and suddenly we found ourselves at the end of the show. To make a long story short, I am so glad my beau enjoyed his first experience, but aside from Dracula's few spurts of dance and a very dark (hard to see) sequence during "The Crypt" I simply left feeling like I need to be more selective about which shows I choose to attend in the future. The play was nice, but the choreography never reached a point for me that embedded a feeling of satisfaction- as a lover of ballet. The costumes were ornate and heavy so again, aside from a few scenes where Dracula dances, there was no elaborate choreography (that could be appreciated due to long skirts and gowns). Nice work, but not enough to quench my ballet thirst.
Ballet Dracula was EPIC!!!
All of the dancers played their characters very well. The lifts were beautiful, the scenery was stellar, and all of the moves fit so well with the story.
This was a great show and I would recommend to a friend.
Dracula, pros and cons
we went Saturday at 2:00 performance. My husband and both agreed not enough Dracula. He should have been in all scenes he was excellent. Really enjoyed him entering and exiting via smoke and down stairs like he was floating. The red cape was very dramatic and added to his mystery. Enjoyed the "dead" dancing we both were thinking Thriller look a like and really enjoyed Renfoe in top of scene. Tickets very pricy would have loved to take our two granddaugthers but impossible with high ticket prices.
Incredible music and dancing. It was my first ballet. Myself, my daughter and my girlfriend all.loved it.
