Margaret Anne MacLeod,
A ballet rendition of Bram Stoker's gothic novel DRACULA, presented in a style reminiscent of the silent expressionistic cinema of the early 20th Century. This work employs the subtle and sometimes bold use of color to emphasize its themes, but mainly is presented in black-and-white, or tinted in monochrome. No spoken dialogue can be heard, and the story of a sinister but intriguing immigrant who preys upon young English women unfolds through dance, pantomime and subtitles. Written by
Transfuses the iron poor tired blood of the vampire genre
Polished performances, talented cast, brilliant design, a pinch of German Expressionism with scintillating special effects; exciting blend of mise-en-scene; revival and modernization of the silent film with world-class sound effects; haunting strains of Mahler's eloquent 1st and 2nd Symphonies; double entendres, semiotics, and the to-die-for Zhang Wei-Quiang as Dracula; transfuses the iron poor tired blood of the vampire genre.
