Canton Ballet will reprise its contemporary work "Dracula … the Ballet" in two evening performances at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 and 22 at the Canton Palace Theatre.

Choreographed in two acts by the ballet’s choreographer in residence Angelo Lemmo, "Dracula … the Ballet" is based on novelist Bram Stoker’s classic gothic romance tale and retold in the medium of ballet. Lemmo’s original music score is compiled from many genres — New Age, classical and choral, among others — with eerie sounds and special effects throughout.

Guest artist Damien Highfield of Groundworks Dance Theatre will perform the role of Dracula. Canton Ballet’s artistic and executive director is Cassandra Crowley.

Admission is $21 to $25 for adults and $15 to $17 for children under 18. There is a discount for groups of 10 or more. Reserved seat tickets may be purchased in advance online at and in person or by telephone at 330-455-7220 at the ballet box office in the Canton Cultural Center for the Arts, 1001 Market Ave. North, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The restored historic Palace Theatre is located at 605 Market Ave. North in the downtown Canton arts district.
