From 25 May to 2 July the Musical Comedy Theatre is presenting the fifth season of Roman Polanski’s legendary musical “Dance of the Vampires”.

It is the Gothic tale of a luckless professor and his young assistant who set off on a scientific-practical expedition to a vampire count’s domain in Transylvania. The music was written by Jim Steinman, who took as its main theme his rock ballad “Total Eclipse of the Heart”. In 2011 the “Viennese” version of the musical was premiered at the St. Petersburg Musical Comedy Theatre, with sets by the successful Hungarian designer Kentaur. His version is distinguished by a particular exquisite sensuality and gloomy luxury in the smallest details of the staging — from the characters’ costumes to the vaults of the charismatic vampire count’s Gothic castle. In the latest version the international production team has chosen new performers for the roles of Sarah and Alfred, as well as new supporting actors.
