Dracula coming to West Chester

Ballet will present its popular full-length ballet Dracula Oct. 23-25 at the Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall on the
campus of West Chester University in West Chester. Tickets are available at www.brandywineballet.com or 610-696-2711.

The recent bestselling novel and movie Twilight illustrates the enduring nature
of themes such as undying love and conflicted passion at the center of vampire
folklore. Nancy Page’s Dracula, based
on the original Bram Stoker vampire novel, follows the immortal romance of
beautiful Mina and the 400-year-old vampire prince Count Dracula. In addition
to impeccable soloing, sensual pas de deux, and exhilarating ensemble dancing, Dracula includes impressive stage sets
of eerily lit 19th century castles and sun-draped terraces;
tantalizing costumes and suspenseful sword battles; as well as an emotionally
moving musical score.

Brandywine Ballet in conjunction with
Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast will also host Dracula Unmasked, a special masked event featuring Dracula cast members, Brandywine Ballet
ticket giveaways, an overnight stay at Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast giveaway, a
silent auction, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on Friday, October 9 from 5:00 –
8:00 pm at Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast. Admission is free for guests wearing
a mask ($3 masks available at the door), but requires an RSVP at
