The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty...Dracula? There's someone you might not expect to find on stage in a classical ballet.

New York State Ballet is performing Dracula this weekend at RIT. Capturing the spirit of this classic horror tale in ballet took some creative thinking about the characters, as choreographer Rob Royce explained, along with sharing the story of his artistic journey and what has brought him to Rochester.  


The New York State Ballet production of Dracula is on stage Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday afternoon at 2pm, at the Robert F. Panara Theatre at RIT
