Count Dracula chose the residents of Los Alamos as his next victims on Feb. 17. The New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company brought the Transylvania terror to the Duane Smith Auditorium with “Dracula,” the ballet.
The performance, adapted from the 1897 novel, “Dracula,” by Bram Stoker, was directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham and showcased two days of performances.
The cast consisted primarily of high school teens and was supported by the younger, junior and apprentice members of the troop. Some adult guests contributed to the cast.
The ballet was silent, so the actors communicated through their elaborate actions and dances. The exceptional concerto music contributed to the dramatic feel of the play.
