Dracula

When: Thu., Oct. 29, 7:30 p.m. and Fri., Oct. 30, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Jonathan Harker experiences the worst business trip ever in Bram Stoker's Dracula. Sent to Transylvania to facilitate a real estate transaction for eccentric nobleman Count Dracula, he is instead imprisoned in the castle as a food source for his host and seduced by the count's wives before barely escaping. Only then does he discover that Dracula has left for England in order to win Harker's wife for himself. Missouri Ballet Theatre presents Dracula, Adam Sage's full-length ballet interpretation of the book, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday (October 29 and 30) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or www.missouriballettheatre.org). The performance includes imaginative choreography and whiz-bang special effects, and it's recommended for audiences twelve and older (there's a lot of seducin', after all). Tickets are $25.
