Dracula (1931): In Concert

Experience an evening of supernatural horror: an event screening of Dracula (1931) with live accompaniment by the Bristol Symphony Orchestra.


In this iconic adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic gothic novel, the urbane and mysterious Count Dracula leaves his home deep in the Carpathian Mountains and travels to London to prey on the blood of living victims – chief among them Mina Seward, the daughter of a prominent doctor.

Dracula was an immediate sensation on its release, with Bela Lugosi’s captivating performance establishing the character of Count Dracula as a cultural phenomenon.

The screening will debut an original score by Sam Foster, performed live by the Bristol Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Robert Weaver.

Tchaikovsky, Strauss & Sibelius

Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture
Strauss Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration) Op 24
Sibelius Symphony No 5 in E Flat Op 82

‘Saw sixteen swans,’ wrote Jean Sibelius. ‘One of the greatest experiences in life. Oh god, what beauty!’

That dazzling vision became the mighty theme that crowns his stirring Fifth Symphony and tonight it’s the climax of an evening packed with emotional intensity, featuring Strauss’s epic tone-poem Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration), a vivid portrait of the last hours of a dying artist which explores ideas of the mind and spirit. But first, prepare to be swept along in Tchaikovsky’s passionate fantasy-overture, which balances the hatred between the Montagues and Capulets, and the passion of the young Romeo and Juliet in a work of heart-breaking beauty. Conductor Robert Weaver and the Bristol Symphony Orchestra return to the stage after their sold-out performance of Dracula in November for this emotional rollercoaster of an evening.
