IN OCTOBER, we enjoy vampires in all forms, from live performances of "Nosferatu" to screenings of campy films such as Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows." But nothing can outdo Bram Stoker's original opus, "Dracula." Watch a performance of the tale in an unexpected form this weekend, produced by West Chester's Brandywine Ballet.
The ballet, choreographed by the company's own Nancy Page, takes one liberty with Stoker's original plot: The story is reimagined as a tragic romance between the characters Mina and Dracula. While die-hard fans of the gothic horror novel might be skeptical of this take, a forbidden romance does seem more fitting for a medium such as ballet.
