It's a tale that's both sinister and seductive. Indeed, the clash of those two opposing feelings is one of the reasons that it has proven such a hit over the past 124 years. We're talking, of course, about the book that thrust a certain bloodsucker into the public consciousness and inspired many a vampire novel, movie, TV show and stage performance afterwards — aka Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Perhaps you've read the gothic horror text, which happens to be one of the best printed tomes ever written. Perhaps you've seen the Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder-starring 90s movie, or maybe you've watched Netflix's recent three-part re-imagining. No matter which category you fall into, you haven't seen the undead classic told as it is in this ballet, which Queensland Ballet is staging at QPAC this year.

Taking over the Lyric Theatre from Wednesday, November 24–Saturday, December 4, this version of Dracula is the handiwork of acclaimed Polish choreographer Krzysztof Pastor, and first premiered in Western Australia in 2018. Now, it's Brisbane's turn to see the world's most famous fanged fiend dance across the stage while doing dastardly deeds — and trying to reunite with his true love, Mina.

Plus, the score stems from Wojciech Kilar, and was originally composed the music for the aforementioned 1992 Dracula film.
