Scene from Dracula

Ballet Arkansas will present Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s telling of the story, at the University of Central Arkansas’s Reynolds Performance Hall on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Dracula is a full-length story ballet that features breathtaking original choreography by Artistic Director Michael Fothergill. Combining the beauty of visual art and mixed multimedia, Dracula tells the story of love and loss, all while keeping the audience on the edge of its seats. Dracula is family-friendly and appropriate for all ages; however, it is a Halloween tale.

For 40 years, Ballet Arkansas has been the foremost professional ballet company in the state, performing classical and contemporary works by world-renowned choreographers.
