    Dracula

    In his production of Dracula for Northern Ballet, choreographer-director David Nixon gives us the vampire as hard-bodied sex symbol. Indeed, our first sight of Dracula (Javier Torres) is when he climbs, stark naked, from his coffin. Elsewhere, wringing every last nuance of erotic metaphor from Bram Stoker’s text, Nixon gives us lashings of gothic coupling to a sinister Schnittke score. This is not a ballet which gives you time for reflection; it cracks through the story at breakneck pace, cutting from scene to scene with cinematic fluency.
