The tickets provided by Goldstar were great. The performance was more theatrics than ballet. The dancing that was included in the production was ok at best. All the group numbers were way off sync and frankly distracting. However when a dancer...continued

Dracula was definitely the star of the show. He was dark, disturbing, and deeply enchanting.

This is like no ballet you've ever seen! Even the boys will enjoy it. Incredible rich sets and fantastic dancing and acting. Beyond our expectations by far. They should take this on the road.

This was an eclectic performance, not just ballet. It was a fusion of movement, magic, and dance.

Both my spouse and I loved the program. The music was extraordinary, the dancing highly professional, and our overall impression was that this definitely a top-drawer performance by a top-drawer dance company.

Fun & exciting show. I'd advise that you read the synopsis in the program before each act, so you can follow the story line easier. Dancing, costumes and sets were beautiful and dramatic.

This production was beautiful and the sets were absolutely amazing. Make sure to read the synopsis in the program, or else it will seem pretty weird an hard to follow. The full cast dances were somewhat sloppy and lacked precision and were not...continued

Take a look at the Washington Post review - it is right on. The Washington Ballet does its usual superb job. The costumes they borrowed from Atlanta Ballet are gorgeous & the Eisenhower Theater sets are beautiful. Wow on the guy who played...continued

The recorded music accompaniment was painfully loud. The choreography was average, and the dancing was a very small part of the production which was more drama than ballet. In many scenes it was straight pantomime. Jared Nelson was great as...continued

We really enjoyed the show. It was more than just ballet, it felt more like a broadway play. The cast did an amazing job and the person who played Dracula was outstanding, even through the applause, he stayed in character. If you get a chance, you...continued

This is a wonderfully theatrical evening, telling the familiar story with lots of bells and whistles. Grand sets and lighting design. A real crowd pleaser.

This was a spectacular ballet. The costumes and stage sets were standouts. The entire ballet was engaging, eery, other worldly.
The dancers were entrancing and their movements sensual.
Highly recommend this event!

Washington Ballet does it again - this was a very creepy and seductive ballet performance!

Tantalizing choreography--a nice balance of elegant ballet and gritty modern dance. The role of Dracula was played chillingly by Jared Nelson the night I attended. This was a phenomenal stage performance. Highly recommended.

Fantastic! Very dramatic. Dracula is an amazing dancer. A very interesting way of portraying the story of dracula. Special effects, costumes and stage were top class.
