Dracula Returns for a Lust-Quenching Valentine’s
Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre | Feb. 8 – 16
One of the Most Popular Productions in Atlanta Ballet History
Live with the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra
Five years have passed since the mercurial Count Dracula last sauntered onto the Atlanta Ballet stage, but the seductive vampire is back just in time for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 8-16, 2013 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
Based on Bram Stoker’s 1897 classic gothic horror story, choreographer Michael Pink’s Dracula mixes romance and passion with horror and pain. The lush cinematic work, complete with sensuous costumes, theatrical sets and a gripping original score (by Philip Feeney), has become one of the biggest hits in Atlanta Ballet’s 83-year history and one of the most popular renditions of Dracula in the world.
Dracula will also mark the official retirement of veteran company dancer Brian Wallenberg. Wallenberg, who semi-retired in 2011, will reprise his role as Jonathan Harker, which was also his first role with Atlanta Ballet 15 seasons ago.
