Count…the Legend of Dracula

Neos Dance Theatre brings Bram Stoker’s opus to life in a way only an innovative dance company can: by weaving industrial rock, pop, and modern dance into its foggy, neck-hankering horror. The story of the famous vampire and the stake-wielding scholar Professor Van Helsing explodes into a multimedia extravaganza thanks to choreographer Bobby Wesner’s collaboration with an Emmy-winning videographer and an Emmy-winning writer. The finished product blends the macabre and the sublime, like Halloween costumes for cats, amid spooky sets and scene-setting projections. But before the dancers even take the stage, audiences get into the spirit by watching the 1920 silent film Genuine – A Tale of a Vampire, accompanied by the ominous tones of a Mighty Wurlitzer organ played by Sarah Kaufman.

E.J. Thomas Hall

Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.

Customer Reviews

Fabulous show. Full of energy. A trip down memory lane

AMAZING! Sarah Chang was extremely impressive. I've never seen someone memorize a piece of music that long. I know she played for at least 30 minutes straight without looking at a sheet of music. Absolutely fantastic! Would definitely go again. The rest of the orchestra was wonderful as well. Highly trained musicians, wide range of pieces.
