Dume Drops Out Of Paris DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES Due To Injury; Stephane Metro Takes Over
Jim Steinman and Michael Kunze's international mega-hit gothic musical DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES is coming to Paris, yet leading man Dume has withdrawn from the show due to a back injury, replaced by popular French musicals star Stephane Metro.
Dume used his official Facebook page to share a message explaining his departure, writing, "Hello everyone, It is with great regret I announce that I can not participate in the musical "Le Bal des Vampires" following a serious back injury that I have to treat in the coming weeks and that prevents me from working. I apologize to the public and wish the best to the cast and producers of the show."

Directed once again by original helmer Roman Polanski, the new Paris production of the horror-themed musical stars Rafaelle Cohen as Sarah and Stephane Metro (replacing Dume) as as Count Von Krolock.
Of note, Cohen and Dume recently performed the worldwide smash "Total Eclipse Of The Heart", originally made famous by Bonnie Tyler, in a preview clip, which also showcases a pleased Polanski overseeing the brand new recording of the epic duet.
LE BAL DES VAMPIRES aka THE DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES is set to open October 16.
