Don’t be the only one this Valentine’s Day missing this spine-tingling treat! Atlanta Ballet’s production of Bram Stokers’s Dracula will run from Thursday, February 5 through Sunday, February 15 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. The Atlanta Ballet Orchestra will perform through the run of the show.

Set to a griping score with howls of wolves and haunting heartbeats, audiences follow the story of businessman Jonathan Harker to Transylvania and to his destined meeting with Count Dracula – a vampire who is a picture of courtly elegance and menacing force. Dracula casts spells over Jonathan, his fiancée Lucy, and her friend Mina.

Dracula is presented by Suntrust Bank. Tickets start as low as $15.00 and are available through Ticketmaster Arts Line at (404) 817-8700 or stop by any Ticketmaster outlet or the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. Order tickets on-line at www.atlantaballet.com or www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets for parties of ten or more can be ordered by calling 404-873-5811 X 207.
