Dracula

Borås City Theatre, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

A visual epic in true horror romantic spirit!

The ancestor of vampires has tickled the nerves of readers and audiences for hundreds of years. And even today, he casts his horrific shadow over current topics such as norms, gender structures and sexuality. Blood-dripping effects and hair-raising music breathe life into Bram Stoker's gothic classics when Count Dracula reappears on Borås City Theatre's big stage to tear friendship and love to pieces. With the help of a large ensemble and a magical stage room, a magnificent theater machinery is created that gives goosebumps.

The young lawyer Jonathan Harker travels deep into the dark forests of Transylvania to visit Count Dracula on behalf of his employer. Once there, he is met by a strange hospitality. He soon discovers that he is a prisoner rather than a guest. When Dracula goes to London in search of blood, life never becomes the same again for Jonathan's fiancée Mina and the others back home. If there is any lifeleft at all want to say.

Lekander has directed a number of productions at Dramaten, Gothenburg City Theater, Malmö City Theater and Uppsala City Theater, among others, and took over in 2018 as artistic director at Örebro County Theater.
