Experience the story of Dracula like you never have before – through the thrilling combination of dance and music. The living and the "undead" collide in this classic story - but this time the story has been interpreted by artistic director Micheal Pink and told by the world-class dancers of the Milwaukee Ballet.

FUELers will enjoy an exclusive backstage tour and then watch the show together. Bonding thru culture and shared experience? Yes, please!

 

ABOUT THE STORY

Inspired by Bram Stoker’s legendary novel of 1897, Dracula follows the events that transpire after London businessman Jonathan Harker has a fateful—seemingly innocuous—meeting with the reclusive Count from Transylvania. Harker’s destiny, as well as that of his beloved fiancée Mina, hangs in the balances as he tries to stop Dracula and his sinister plans before it’s too late.  Click to download the Dracula 2018 Audience Guide.

ABOUT THE DANCERS

Twenty-three professional dancers make up the Milwaukee Ballet Company. Coming from eight countries, these dancers have chosen to bring their unique talents to this city and now call Milwaukee home. ABOUT THE MUSIC Dracula is one of Pink’s many partnerships with composer Philip Feeney and was originally created in collaboration with Northern Ballet Theatre Artistic Director Christopher Gable (1940-1998).

ABOUT THE MUSIC

Feeney’s score will be performed live by Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra with the 2018-19 Baumgartner Studio Artists from the Florentine Opera.
