The Marlowe
Northern Ballet’s Dracula
Northern Ballet presents


Step into the world of Dracula – if you dare.

Seducing countless generations, Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire lives on in this extraordinary ballet. The dark tale of the immortal Count is played out through Northern Ballet’s blend of sensuous dancing and gripping theatre enhanced by gothic sets and costumes.

If you think you know what to expect from ballet, think again. This is ballet with a dramatic bite that will leave you thirsty for more – don’t miss your chance to experience it.

Features music by Schnittke, Rachmaninov, Pärt and Daugherty.
