Roxey Ballet to Stage DRACULA October 25-November 3, 2013
Just in time for Halloween, Roxey Ballet will stage its spectacular, up close and personal production experience of Bram Stokers "Dracula". RB's groundbreaking and original ballet choreography was created in 2001 and follows the classic Dracula horror story which is set in 18th century England and tells the tale in a "total theater experience". The spooktacular performance features dazzling special, sound and lighting effects.
Roxey Ballet has created an original kaleidoscope of sites,sounds and music which depicts the range of characters and their emotions of fear, rage, horror, love and passion. The result is a production that breaks through the normal boundaries of dance performance to draw the audience deeply into the world created by the Roxey Ballet dancers and the companies chief Choreographer Mark Roxey. "The audiences are as close to the performers as possible but don't be afraid they don't bite" said Mark Roxey Artists Director. The audience will recognize the unwary Renfield who accidentally falls victim to the vampire on his way to the gala at the ball; the lovely Lucy, whose beauty attracts Dracula, who seduces her; and Dr. Van Helsing who leads the attack to rescue Lucy and the others who have fallen prey to the vampires attack. Dracula features outstanding choreography and a presentation that is not your typical dance performance experience and runs through Halloween. The set is abstract and minimalist and designed by Lisa McMillan and costumes are created by Nilda Roxey Jones and Alicia Worden. Performances are held at Canal Studios 243 North Union Street, Lambertville, New Jersey. Performances will be held on October 25th through November 3rd. Tickets are 28 in advance and 30 at the door.
