The Atlantic City Ballet Presents DRACULA, 10/24-31
Atlantic City Ballet's Dracula haunts their new home with a weekend of performances and a special Halloween showing.
Halloween just wouldn't be the same without taking in a performance of Atlantic City Ballet's "Dracula". Since 2006, "Dracula" has been mesmerizing audiences with its spell binding choreography, beautiful costumes and captivating music. This year Dracula makes his haunting return to the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City. "Dracula," an original work, choreographed by Founder and Artistic Director, Phyllis Papa, is a full length ballet that has captured audience's imaginations with hypnotic fascination. "Despite the image of the main character, AC Ballet's production is family friendly." says Phyllis Papa. "Young and old can enjoy our ballet which follows closely to the Bram Stoker novel" Looking for a ballet tradition that equals Nutcracker, Phyllis Papa created Dracula to capture Twilight lovers in hopes of bringing a younger audience to see the ballet. A special Halloween performance is also scheduled and audiences are invited to come in costume. A costume parade after the performance will be held and prizes given.
The Atlantic City Ballet consists of 25 professional dancers from all over the globe including the US, Latvia, Japan, Italy, Brazil, Romania and France. Miss Papa has been a Principal dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and Stars of the American Ballet and is also the recipient of the 1998 Brazilian Gold Medal of Honor.
