Dracula: The Ballet Press Release

San Jose Dance Theatre welcomes you to a world of darkness and desire, where the immortal reigns and shadows dance with exquisite grace in “Dracula: The Ballet.” This is a new contemporary work by Artistic Associate Director, Augusto Silva. SJDT is thrilled to bring this new engaging material to San Jose audiences.

Within the ethereal realm of this ballet, we pay homage to the haunting prose of Bram Stoker’s immortal novel, a literary work that dared to unravel the enigmatic secrets of the undead. Stoker’s chilling tale first emerged from the depths of Victorian society, capturing the imagination of readers worldwide, and forever etching the name of Count Dracula into the annals of horror literature.

Prepare to be enraptured by the dark allure of “Dracula.” Brace yourselves as we delve into the eternal battle between light and darkness, where the legacy of Bram Stoker’s iconic novel is reborn through the timeless language of dance. Welcome to a world where dreams and nightmares converge, and the haunting melodies of the night guide our souls through the dance of immortality. A ballet with a bite! *Due to some mature material, parental guidance is suggested
