Dracula isn't your typical ballet. The award-winning rock score from local composer Michael Massey is seen live on stage with a seven-piece band. Dancers are dressed in steampunk gear that tells a Gothic story with original choreography by Artistic Director W. Earle Smith. "Dracula  is the crown jewel of Madison Ballet's repertoire, having been conceived, written and premiered here in Madison," Smith says. "We are so excited to have it back for three more performances at home before taking this world-class show on tour."

After Madison, the show will perform in Oshkosh and Springfield, Missouri.
