“Spectacle of an order ballet audiences seldom see today…exquisitely beautiful and atmospheric.” – New York Times

Ben Stevenson’s Dracula fills the stage with eerie gothic grandness, from its costumes and sets, to the glorious love triangle at the center of its iconic tale. Set to the music of Franz Liszt, this world of sweeping movement, ingenious stage effects, and dark, rich coloring will envelope you in its haunting world of evil temptation and transfix you from first bite.

Prior to all performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet, with special guests, multi-media presentations and more. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain.

Costume Guidelines
With Halloween around the corner, we know that many of our Dracula ticket holders will want to know if it is appropriate to embrace the Halloween spirit and come in costume.

To help guide our visitors who wish to dress up for your performance of Dracula, keep in mind the safety and comfort of your fellow audience members by following these simple rules:

We encourage your creativity and thank you in advance for valuing safety and good judgement as much as we do.

For those who miss the mark, adjustments will be required in order to be admitted into the venue. Final determination and approval of entry is at the sole discretion of The Smith Center’s security team and house management.

Please note: all rules, regulations and guidelines are subject to change without notice.
