WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DRACULA

“… an original, made-in-Canada, full-length story ballet that combines wit, intelligence, theatricality and fine dancing in one very entertaining package.”
- Michael Crabb, Arts Today, October 26, 1998

“Mark Godden’s Dracula is a ballet that will live on. This is Gothic ballet at its most appealing. From opening prologue to final scene, there is rumour of longevity to the production, a hint of the magic that makes the myths of Dracula so immortal.”
- The Edmonton Journal, March 3, 1999

“I was utterly seduced… I’ve been bitten.”
- Robert Enright, CBC Radio, October 23, 1998
