A.C. Ballet Celebrates Halloween With ‘Dracula’ Friday at Caesars
The ballet tells the story of Count Dracula, the infamous nobleman and vampire from Transylvania who is looking to move to England.
He hires a well-meaning London lawyer, Jonathan Harker, who quickly discovers he is trapped in the castle at the mercy of three seductive vampire brides. Ballerinas dripping with fake blood pop out of coffins in dramatic Victorian-era costumes.
The audience at the Circus Maximus Theater inside Caesars is welcome to come in costume and you should expect a few vampires in the crowd.
This original ballet, created by Phyllis Papa, the Atlantic City Ballet's founder, and artistic director, is complete with sensuous costumes, theatrical sets, and a gripping score, has become one of the biggest hits in Atlantic City Ballet's 38-year history.
Despite the image of the main character, AC Ballet’s production is family-friendly.” says Phyllis Papa. “Audiences of all ages can enjoy our ballet which follows closely to the Bram Stoker novel.”
Tickets are on sale now for Friday's performance.
