Northern Ballet’s ‘Dracula’ to be aired on BBC Four!

Northern Ballet has announced that David Nixon OBE’s acclaimed new adaptation of the Bram Stoker classic, Dracula, which enjoyed sell-out live performances and a live cinema release last October, will be broadcast on BBC Four on Sunday 31 May (10pm) and on BBC iPlayer throughout June as part of Northern Ballet’s ‘Pay As You Feel‘ Digital Season.

Dracula was recorded at Leeds Playhouse on Halloween 2019 and streamed live to over 10,000 viewers in cinemas across Europe. Choreographed by David Nixon OBE, it stars Premier Dancer Javier Torres in the lead role.

To date the ‘Pay As You Feel‘ season has been watched by over 200,000 people and attracted donations of over £20,000.

Northern Ballet is set to face a loss of over £1M in box office income due to COVID-19 which may impact their ability to continue to pay their workforce, many of whom are freelancers, as well as their ability to present new ballets. Whilst theatres remain dark, the Company aims to continue making their performances available online and on TV, encouraging audiences to donate when they watch, if they are able.
