Event Details

Love comes in many forms. It’s not always sweet. It can be demanding, consuming, and even a bit… bloodthirsty. Get ready as OBT takes a uniquely Portland approach to the month of love with the premiere of Ben Stevenson’s deliciously spine-chilling Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s 1897 gothic novel of the same title.

Dissatisfied with his bevy of undead brides, Count Dracula fixates on Svetlana, a young girl on the cusp of engagement, to satiate his thirst for fresh blood. Abducted by Dracula’s faithful henchman Renfield, Svetlana is dragged away to the Count’s castle from where she may never escape but for the heroism of her true love, Frederick.

A haunting score by Franz Liszt – performed live by the OBT Orchestra! – sets the tone for this immersive fairy tale, with awe-inspiring theatrics, vampire brides, stunning sets, and exquisite dancing. Dracula will spook and delight young and old alike, and remind us all of the power of true love.

Recommended for ages 8 and up.
