NAC Presentation

Atmospheric and brooding, Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s deliciously gothic Dracula lives up to the rich history of its famous source material with its smouldering eroticism, mysterious transformations, dancing gargoyles, and flying bats. Performed to the lush, evocative music of Gustav Mahler, Mark Godden’s inventive and sensual choreography breathes dramatic new life into the macabre yet irresistible tale of the immortal vampire and his dark passions. 

Dracula has thrilled, terrified and delighted audiences since its premiere in 1998, becoming a treasured favorite in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s repertoire.  

Performance is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes including intermission
