Northern Ballet’s production of Dracula will run on the night of Halloween for one fang-tastic night only. However, audiences all over the UK and Ireland will be able to catch the live broadcast at 7.15pm from Leeds Playhouse – and we have five pairs of tickets to give away to readers of Dancing Times. Created and choreographed by Northern Ballet’s artistic director, David Nixon, who has also designed the Victorian-style costumes, Dracula tells the chilling story of Bram Stoker’s seductively sinister vampire, set to an eclectic score featuring music by Alfred Schnittke, Sergei Rachmaninov, Arvo Pärt and Michael Daugherty.

Cinema audiences will be treated to Northern Ballet’s blend of sensuous dancing and gripping theatre enhanced by Ali Allen’s gothic set design and Tim Mitchell’s lighting design. To enter our competition, simply send your name and full postal address by email to by September 30, 2019. The tickets can be used at any participating venue.
