Kansas City Ballet Resurrects Dracula

February 18-27, 2022 at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Muriel Kauffman Theatre

Back by popular demand, the internationally renowned Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s classic gothic horror story tantalizes as it terrifies. This lush theatrical work has it all…sensuous costumes, thrilling sets and special effects, and a gripping original score that will take your breath away. Parental discretion is advised.

With the combination of dramatic choreography by Michael Pink, an original, haunting score by Philip Feeney, dazzling costumes by Lez Brotherston, thrilling sets, and shocking special effects, Dracula delivers sensuality and danger in a dance/theater narrative with story-enhancing sound effects. Kansas City Ballet first performed Dracula in February 2014 to great acclaim.

Created in 1996 by Michael Pink, Artistic Director of Milwaukee Ballet Company, this terrifying yet romantic three-act drama has won critical acclaim in England, Australia, and North America.

“The show has developed somewhat of a worldwide cult following,” Choreographer Michael Pink says. “Kansas City Ballet dancers first performed it eight years ago, and I am thrilled they will bring it to life –and immerse audiences in the vampire’s version of eternal life — once again.”
