Bram Stoker's epistolary novel Dracula is a story of time and distance shattered by physical contact. Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray love one another with proper Victorian passion expressed through letters and conversation, but never touch. It is Dracula's seductive physical power that makes him so terrifying; he uses intimate contact -- neck bites and blood sucking -- to pierce both of their souls and threaten their domestic tranquility. The sensuality of the vampire and his eternal hunger is what fuels choreographer Adam Sage's new full-length ballet, Dracula. The dark love triangle of the story becomes a deadly dance of life and love against the forces of the night. Missouri Ballet Theatre presents Dracula at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday (October 17 and 18) at the Edison Theatre on Washington University's campus (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or www.edison.wustl.edu). Tickets are $25.
Fri., Oct. 17, 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 18, 7:30 p.m., 2014
