Based on the novel by Bram Stoker

Before Twilight, before True Blood, only one vampire commanded "the children of the night." In this blood-thirsty tale of unholy terror, Count Dracula slips into Victorian London with the cargo of his native Transylvanian soil - so he can rest between victims. The city seems helpless against his frightful power, and only one man, Dr. Van Helsing, can stop the carnage. But to do this, he must uncover the vampire's lair and pierce his heart with a wooden stake.

BWW Editorial: Opera Moderna, una storia di false partenze
by Francesco Vittorino - May 16, 2017

Cinquant'anni fa debuttava al Sistina l'opera beat di Tito Schipa jr. 'THEN AN ALLEY', considerata il primo esperimento al mondo di Opera Rock. La scelta del titolo (che si traduce 'E poi una strada') fu quasi profetica, perche quello fu il primo passo di un cammino che porto alla rifondazione del genere operistico attraverso spettacoli come 'Tommy', 'Jesus Christ Superstar', 'Starmania', 'Notre-Dame de Paris' e tanti altri. Spettacoli anche molto diversi tra loro (opere rock, opere popolari, opere prog eccetera) accomunati pero da una drammaturgia che recupera quella del melodramma. Ci sarebbe quasi da commuoversi all'idea che un anniversario del genere cada a pochi giorni dal 450° compleanno di Monteverdi, uno dei padri fondatori del genere operistico classico, se non fosse per una cosa. Perche l'Opera Moderna fatica a prendere piede in Italia? (more...)
