“The show has developed somewhat of a cult following...Once people see it, they’re hooked.”
Michael Pink, Artistic Director
Inspired by Bram Stoker’s legendary novel of 1897, Dracula follows the events that transpire after London businessman Jonathan Harker has a fateful—seemingly innocuous—meeting with the reclusive Count from Transylvania.
Harker’s destiny, as well as that of his beloved fiancée Mina, hangs in the balances as he tries to stop Dracula and his sinister plans before it’s too late…
Dracula will be Leading Artist Luz San Miguel’s final on-stage performance with Milwaukee Ballet. After 14 seasons with the Company, Luz will take on her role as Ballet Master in a full-time capacity. Don’t miss Luz in one of her favorite productions.
Michael Pink is the longest serving artistic director in Milwaukee Ballet’s history. Since arriving in 2002, he has demonstrated his commitment to the future of dance through new work, education, and collaboration. His artistic vision for Milwaukee Ballet continues to excite and challenge.
