It looks like they managed to scrape together enough financing for 5 programs this year! Albeit, 2 of them are only a single weekend.

I believe Dracula was last performed in fall 2010 and was a huge hit. (I've never seen it.) It looks like a good idea to do this again on Halloween weekend and edge back to five programs a year after having to cut back to four.

I've seen Dracula 14 times. It's a cash cow for them, as long as they don't overuse it. Martin Fredmann recognized the potential popular appeal of it and purchased costumes and props because he expected to program it on a regular basis. Not the greatest ballet ever, but lots of fun. Wheeldon's A Midsummer Night's Dream was the first program that I saw the CB do, and that was the first professional ballet performance that I ever attended.
