Just in time for the spookiest time of year, Dracula is a captivating adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic Gothic novel, brought to life through two time Tony Award nominated Lynne Taylor-Corbett's mesmerizing choreography and haunting music performed live by members of the Cleveland Pops Orchestra. Paired with Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death, you don't want to miss this perfectly sinister show.

Dracula tells the story of the enigmatic count who preys upon the living to sustain his immortal existence. As Dracula sets his sights on the innocent Mina Murray, her fiancé and a group of determined vampire hunters embark on a perilous quest to stop him.

 

The Masque of the Red Death follows Prince Prospero's attempts to avoid the Red Death plague by hiding in his abbey where he hosts a masquerade ball in seven rooms.
