For the second Halloween season in a row, the Ballet Theater of Annapolis is staging "Dracula" at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis.
The ballet, a modernized interpretation of Bram Stoker's horror tale, will feature Chinese dancer Zhirui Zou this fall, making her debut as a principal dancer with the Annapolis company in a new role as the monster's jealous bride.
Zou, a Beijing resident considered one of China's finest dancers, is spending a year in Annapolis.
The ballet tracks Dracula -- danced by Dmitry Tuboltsev, a Bolshoi dancer who joined the company and tackled the role last year -- from his birth through his death. It features choreography by BTA's artistic director, Edward Stewart, and special effects.
Performances are at 8 p.m. today and tomorrow at Maryland Hall, 801 E. Chase St. Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $10 for children and students with valid identification. For more information, call 410-263-2909.
